    Pros

    Some of their senior people (Sr. Mgrs +) are the best in the business in terms of expertise, leadership, mentoring, ethics and value. Working alongside these folks can be quite an experience if one is open to learning from them, from the example they set.

    Cons

    Just like in any org, there are some D and F level players, even in the senior roles who were typically hired from outside. Some have been asked to leave by more than 3 clients, squandered millions in client money yet remain at the org in highly visible leadership positions.

    Advice to Management

    Hold partners and directors accountable to the same (at least) or a higher standard than the rest of the organization. Many people at that level are resting on their laurels, abusing their title to mistreat staff or escape unscathed when they make costly mistakes that cost the company people, reputation, revenue and time/money to the clients.

    Pros

    Very accessible senior management with an entrepreneurial culture and friendly colleagues. Worked on a lot of interesting projects with driven team.

    Cons

    In the financial services practice, we had a very limited number of clients and most of our work was centered on the regulatory space.

    Advice to Management

    Specific to the financial services practice, hire senior leadership with proven experience who can broaden client engagement opportunities and practice offerings.
