    Pros

    Conservative company. Most of the people are smart and friendly. Very conservative personal growth. A seemingly friendly management. Respects work life balance. Good for lifers. Make sure that you understand the office politics - its neither bad or good - but will help you grow there.

    Cons

    Growth is slow. Management can not handle stars. Out of the line thinking and creativity is not handled well. Low paymaster. Well known for laying off long timers at the first hint of trouble. Enjoy life in this firm, but keep a backup.

    Advice to Management

    Everybody is polite to an extreme, making some real issues not coming to the management. A lot of politics goes on for the Bonus issue - make it more transparent.

    I have been working at Olsson Associates full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Very open book management with monthly financials and regular communication about operations. For a larger company, good systems in place for internal communication. Competitive salaries with opportunity for advancement. Great benefits with good HR responsiveness. Autonomy is given to local offices to function and operate as an independent business unit, but with plenty of support.

    Cons

    Growth is sometimes faster than what can be managed well. Not all offices are as cooperative in doing what's best for the company as a whole. With nearly 30 offices, the company is always battling against silos and cannibalizing a market.

    Advice to Management

    Keep fighting the silos so all offices and regions work well together and support each other. Incentives for cooperative, multi-team and multi-office projects work well.
