Disapproves of CEO

Pros

Pockets of high-quality talent if you are willing to seek it out.

Cons

Classic hypocrisy in operating model: they sell employers their expertise in HR matters like "employee engagement," all the while exploiting the employees' talents with empty promises of advancements that never seem to come. Promotional decisions seem to be done in the mode of a fraternity rather than a business. By the time you realize you've been duped, you have given up valuable years and passed up other opportunities.

Advice to Management

Eat your own cooking.

    Pros

    Some of the people there are great. Depending on client team, opportunities of to learn. Global firm with strong client list.

    Local managment drives to culture and feel. Can be good and bad. Wall Street is driving decisions based on merger expectations. Old boys club and management looking out for themselves.

    Retire and look at your offices closely. Small firms with attract you neglected talent.

    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    Genuinely great colleagues, you get to work alongside some real experts, competitive compensation and benefits package. Good career choice for consulting/client facing professionals.

    Cons

    It can be a demanding work environment, but not as full-on as some other consulting firms. Things are calming down after the merger, but some things are still slightly disjointed.

    Advice to Management

    The leadership at TW is generally effective and well respected - they should continue with the positive communications to associates and emphasizing the success of the merger.
