Pros

Highly autonomous environment where smart people are exposed to challenging client opportunities. Very little bureaucracy relative to global firms means you can be a superstar regardless of where you sit.

Cons

Low hierarchy doesn't suit those who expect their career progression to be mapped out and managed for them. Those who aren't self-starters will struggle to get ahead.

Advice to Management

Management seems to have the right focus - just needs to execute on its plans more consistently.

    Pros

    Great people, low process overhead, good callobrative environment, work / life balance. Low management overhead and opportunity to be creative with ideas.

    Cons

    Poor reputation through its treatment of staff. Very money driven cultural with a very high turnover of staff (way above industry average). Generally Poor leadership and lack of vision. Very little opportunity to develop career.

    Advice to Management

    Creat an environment where people enjoy coming to work instead of chasing every $ and making staff feel like commodities and not people. The culture of greed at the top of the organization is very visible to staff.
