Disapproves of CEO

Pros

Flexibility on where you can do work. Very talented and smart individuals throughout the organization.

Cons

Mid-management is a struggle and much more of a genlemen/women club than other companies. No mechanism of helping people in their mid-career (4-8 years) grow since mid-management only look after themselves.

Advice to Management

Go back to the model where collegiality and teamwork are developed locally and help those that travel often integrate into their temporary 'home office'.

    Pros

    People around you are nice and always willing to help. Mangers are open for advice. Compensation and benefits are good.

    Cons

    Not able to see the bigger picture. Not a very good consulting firm in general. Not easy to find information you need.

    Advice to Management

    Have more strategic view of the group, have a clear vision of the future. Be more helpful, less hierarchy or red tape

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    A lot of scope to move your career laterally. Large company ,so potential to be exposed to large projects and work with smart people.

    Cons

    Strong management focus on compliance and process over outcomes. In my area, little reward for success and no encouragement to move up in the organisation.

    Advice to Management

    Hmm, this section is not optional. I do not have any constructive comment for management. I suppose think about my 'cons' section above.
