Current Employee - Associate Director
No opinion of CEO

Pros

People are generally good and want to get things done (locally). Good immediate manager, nice benefits.

Cons

No clear bonus transpanancy, bonuses haven't been market level for sometime even before 2008 market downturn. Promotions seem to be departmental favored.
Some people should have been fired some time ago, but this is one of the upper management weaknesses. Now, we are stuck with the unprofessional staff until Dec 2012.

Advice to Management

take care of your staff - they are the backbone of the firm.
