Pros

the work can be very interesting - you are often dumped in a situation where you do not have the knowledge/skills so you learn very very quickly

the senior management are in their own world - they do not live what they preach this company is only about money - this is not a people centric organisation

Advice to Management

look in the mirror and do the red face test - Pretend you do not own the company and see what your investment decisions would be

    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.
