    Seniors and up aren't always held accountable for developing staff.

    Advice to Management

    Hold people accountable for developing others and create a meaningful performance management system. During busy seasons make time for people to write solid reviews to avoid rush of compliance deadline. Be upfront about all issues and don't reward high performers based solely on technical competence.

    Be a trailblazer in developing initiatives rather than reacting to competitor firms.
