    I have been working at Faithful + Gould full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Flexible working hours and travel.

    Cons

    Management within the SFC business is inefficient and the people running the service line appear distracted. The newest client is always the most important while the old clients lose importance once the money runs dry and the work remains - similar to a Ponzi scheme, which is ignored by top level management - as long as a new client walks in the door. I worry the house of cards will fall around me and my coworkers. things have also gotten worse since the SNC takeover with the best of staff leaving. It may be an interesting six to twelve months ahead of us

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your staff, respond to queries and be honest - do not just ell them what they want to hear

    Pros

    Difficult to mention, however paid vacation is good just to get away.

    Cons

    Management in the Phoenix office is poor, difficult to work with on a daily basis and I am so glad I have left. Around the time I left, other experienced people also left the company which tells you that its a disappointing place to work. Be careful taking a position at the phoenix office, things will start off nice, however over a period of time management will become overbearing and impossible to work for or with, which just causes tension and low production due to loss of enthusiasm.

    Clients be careful also, regarding quality of work and also billing.

    Advice to Management

    Change out management here in the Phoenix office before a terrible issue arises.

    Pros

    Flexible Schedules and they like to drink at the bar after work.

    Cons

    This company does a really poor job of retaining its employees. They sooner have you quit and hire some inexperience kid straight out of a 2-yr tech school. You are simply a number on a spread sheet and all management cares about is your overall billable hour %. This company is greedy and has to much corporate overhead (Technical directors/ VP) that are simply not generating enough revenue. If your looking for a dishonest employer that would simply lie to your face, leave you stuck in a dead end job, without a raise or the possibility of a promotion then by all means you've found the perfect employer in Faith+ Gould.

    Advice to Management

    None, You wouldn't listen anyway so what's the point. Maybe you should try another corporate survey from HR those all seem to have worked so well in the past.

    Pros

    Friendly people, decent pay and benefits. Treat employees fairly well.

    Cons

    No clear career path. Management is reluctant to upset clients by allowing people to pursue new opportunities within the company. Some amount of favoritism for the Brit ex-pats.

    Advice to Management

    Have long term career paths for your more valuable employees. Work with clients to develop exit strategies.
