    I worked at The Segal Group full-time

    Pros

    Good people, clients always put first, exposure to clients and senior level management early in career.

    Cons

    Top performers are "rewarded" with more work, not all of which presents learning opportunities. Often long hours in order to get the work done. Flat structure does not provide many levels for advancement - may have worked fine when company started but will not work to retain top talent in today's environment.
    Salary.

    Advice to Management

    Eliminate duplication of work efforts. Stay out on trends in corporate culture. Practice what you preach to clients.
    Understand mindset of young employees if you want to retain them.

    Pros

    If you're somewhat intelligent and complete your work, you will excel at Segal. They do not push people very hard and the hours are reasonable for a consulting firm.

    Cons

    The salary reflects how hard they push you. You can easily find yourself pigeonholed into staying at this company because of the way they delegate tasks (you won't have enough experience in various areas for other companies to want you). It is not a place for a young person to stay for an extended amount of time.

    I have been working at The Segal Group full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    I've worked for other consulting firms and find Segal to be top notch; Excellent, varied opportunities to work with talented people collaboratively across the firm; Mid-size firm allows visibility (not a number) and management is open and flexible to allow people exposure to different types of projects and work IF one chooses. You are held accountable for your own career

    Cons

    With a consulting/professional services firm, the hours will vary with the ebb and flow of our clients' needs. Sometimes, it can feel intense, BUT if a client needs you, it is good - you are valued.

    Advice to Management

    be open; be communicative; be present

    Pros

    They really have a good work life balance. They really have their strategy grounded in sound business practices and good people work there.

    Cons

    Sometimes need to work late hours, and always need to be connected - nights and weekends. Rarely a true vacation, since always asked to pitch in.

    Advice to Management

    Review competitive practices elsewhere. Increase pay for exceptional performers, pay real bonuses and real zeros to train only those you want
