Pros

Great team to work for, wonderful people to work with, as well as tons of opportunities for professional growth if you can struggle through the boring stuff in the beginning.

Cons

Micromanagement can be a serious problem. Also, routine is always a killer. Also, sometimes I wish MS would eliminate a lot of overlapping managerial positions that it currently has because it sucks to be reporting to 15 layers of management on top of you.

Advice to Management

Less micromanagement, be a little bolder and, most importantly, stop copying everything from GS's model.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Reputation and Client Base
    Compensation and Benefits
    The research was top notch and the firm was involved in major deals

    Cons

    The sheer magnitude of the salesforce was overwhelming - there appeared to be a focus on quantity, not quality, which led to an unusually high rate of attrition

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to focus on the professional development of its enormous salesforce, on increasing the product knowledge of its salesforce and most of all needs to ensure that client objectives are the number one priority
