    Pros

    Finn Partners has a lot of pros. It is a company filled with some of the most intelligent people in the industry. They have a wonderful variety of clients and truly do care about their employees. They want employees to enjoy their jobs while delivering results. They strive for excellence, so you are absolutely going to get a well-rounded experience and be inserted into all verticals of the industry. Depending on the department, they are flexible about working from home but understandably you have to prove yourself first. They have great maternity leave and understand the importance of family obligations. Plus (if approved) you can bring your dog to the office. 99 percent of the people that work at Finn Partners are wonderful people.

    Cons

    Every department is managed differently and some blanket company policies are not followed in certain groups. Good management and a career trajectory is desparately lacking. They are very top heavy so if you are in middle management or below - you won't move up, even if you are outpacing your peers. People leave the company because of bad managers. Good benefits but poor salaries.

    Advice to Management

    You have a great foundation and good values, don't let toxic managers continue employee turnover. Turnover will eventually effect the bottom line. Provide management training and make sure managers take their job mentoring others seriously.

    Pros

    Company is rapidly growing (mainly through acquisitions); lots of space, so most everyone (even junior staff) get an office. Good health, 401K benefits, summer fridays, fair PTO policy + the week off between xmas and new years (extra time off).

    Cons

    The office is outdated and there isn't much camaraderie, which makes for a dull/lackluster atmosphere. They aren't doing a very good job of assimilating acquired companies so the office feels divided. Over-service is an epidemic. Everyone is underpaid and under appreciated.

    Advice to Management

    Do right by your people; be fair across the board; have company policy, not group policies.. what's good for one employee in a specific group in a specific office should be the same for someone else in another group/office across the country.
