Pros

The hours are not bad, and the benefits are reasonable. There is considerable flexibility on your work hours and work location. Colleagues are generally nice and fun to work with.

Cons

There is a lot of bureaucracy (as with any company of this size), but the internal groups are highly inefficient at getting stuff done. It takes forever just to get your computer fixed, for example. There is also a general sense of unhelpfulness, in that other groups are typically not willing to share their information or lend a helping hand when asked. There is also not a good sense of a unified culture, with all the recent acquisitions that the company has made. Compensation is also lower than competitors, and the company as a whole seems to be struggling.

Advice to Management

The internal systems need to be greatly improved, as they significantly impact the productivity of many of the employees.

    Pros

    It is a great enviroment to work in and advancement is available. The company is growing so things change rapidly. The senior management listens to the employees and makes changes when necessary. The strategy of the company is explained regularly and the progess that is being made is rewarded. Hard work is rewarded financially as well as with perks. The work that is done if for the greater good of humanity.

    Cons

    Work life balance is hard to manage becuase the company is growing so quickly. Additional the department that I am apart of needs work to be consistent with the rest of the company. This is currently being addressed with large changes to the structure of the department.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work and continue working to increase employee engagement.

    Pros

    I can only speak about the consulting side. It's a fast paced, exciting place to work. Most of the personalities in the group are pleasant and friendly. Not everyone has had my experience, but if you are a dedicated and hard worker willing to make some sacrifices, you will be accepted with open arms by senior management. They have a keen sense of who the producers are and who the laggards are.

    Cons

    In consulting you will work very long hours. It is a rarity that you will work less than 50 hr weeks. In fact, there will be times you will work over 70 hrs per week. In order to be an effective consultant, you have to have a passion for it.

    Advice to Management

    None yet. They have been very supportive and motivating.
