Approves of CEO

Pros

They expect a lot, but they also give a lot in return. It's a high performance place that rewards hard work, enthusiasm and people with initiative. The environment is very collaborative and team oriented. It's wonderful to work in a place where I respect and admire my peers and my managers.

Cons

Different practices have different sub-cultures, depending on the practice leaders. None are necessarily bad, but they may not always be the right fit. Try to figure out what you're getting in to. Also, there is a very subtle, unofficial hierarchy: client servers tend to look down on "support" personnel.

Advice to Management

Keep up the good work. Thanks for communicating regularly.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    The firm is widely recognized and a very good name to have on your resume. Good benefits and perks. Overall, the firm is efficient and organized.

    Cons

    People seem to have high expectations of everything and if you don't meet even one expecation, it is formally documented and can affect your overall performance rating. People are always behind closed doors and never have time to meet with you to discuss in person. Layoffs are ongoing.
    The economy seems to be the excuse for anything negative happening in the company.
    People live with their blackberries and expect you to be available 24/7 everyday. Who needs this??

    Advice to Management

    Better streamlined communication is needed. Also, you need to be more available to your employees. The idea of counselors is good but only when they are truly effective at counseling someone.
