    Pros

    Career development and Job perks.

    Cons

    Just a cog in the overall meat grinder. Massive staff turnover rate. The level of stress here is unbelievably high.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in human capital, not just your immediate bottom line.

    Pros

    Reputable firm
    Beautiful offices/location
    Good people aside from a handful of some very self-interested directors

    Cons

    My lackluster review of working for this company may have more to do with the politics, impersonal culture and limited opportunities I experienced on my team. I sensed that perhaps it was different on other teams and offices. However, because of the lack of comraderie or opportunities to work across teams, I will never know for sure. In my experience, this is a very top down organization (at least in the D.C. office) that only opens doors for those who are willing to put in their time stabbing backs and stepping on toes to get there. Everyone else just plugs along with their marching orders. Not a very innovative or exciting environment.
