    Pros

    Working with talented employees, many of whom left top funds and banks for a better work/life balance. Working at one of the largest consultancies in the world helps as well.

    Cons

    One could argue that the work and leisure balance is reflected on the light pay. especially for those employees right out of college.

    Advice to Management

    Leadership changed during the summer in a very positive fashion. Mr. Len Brennan wasa longtime Russell employee and knows how this company should be run.


  2. "Good place to learn though staying power is waning..."

    Pros

    Decent benefits, relatively flexible working hours are the top two things that come to mind.
    Having been around the various offices globally, it's not a lie to say the company has some really nice people (though this varies a bit from office to office depending on the local culture). Everyone's easy to get along and happy to lend a helping hand. Work provides great exposure and learning environment as long as you're independent, self motivated and thrive on DIY. People are smart and extremely hard-working, going beyond their call-of-duty to fulfill client needs.

    Cons

    Poor communication from management
    No clear roadmap of how vision and strategy will exactly translate to an implementation plan, though this could improve in 2012
    The unwinding of certain past initiatives vs. others creates more questions
    The work environment sometimes can be too independent in that there's lots of expectation but little support from management - molds a tougher personality which isn't all bad
    Technology especially analytical tools need a massive upgrade - a major part of the reason that bogs down work processes and delay deliverables!

    Advice to Management

    Pay real attention to issues raised by employees rather than just lip service
    Invest in technology - it's what a long-term, patient investor would do today
