    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    Friendly colleagues who are good people, with less competitiveness relative to other consulting firms; very good work/life balance where managers will most often respect your personal life and avoid imposing face time; solid review systems in place and open dialogue always possible with those above you

    Cons

    The firm doesn't always engage in the most interesting or intellectually challenging assignments; the direction / niche of the firm in terms of types of clients and assignments it pursues is a bit vague which can make it difficult to become very passionate about the company and what it does; promotion can be counted on for good work, but is uneven across departments within the company

    Advice to Management

    Narrow the strategic direction of the firm - and stick to it, top-down. Provide higher compensation to attract greater talent, particularly at the senior management level.
