    I worked at The Segal Group full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    A pro used to be the people we worked with, but the ones that were smart and eager and trustworthy are largely gone. If one is of a high enough level, the semi annual summits are a nice getaway with clients, colleagues, and managers, though these are fraught with conflicts and are a ton of work for the staff.

    Cons

    Segal Rogerscasey has not paid its target bonuses (which many feel should be the minimum if you are doing your job well) in at least six years. If you are given an offer with a percentage target, for example, expect to get less than half of that, no matter how good your review. Beyond that, employees are not treated well, with even the most minor/inexpensive suggestions that could make the place a better place to work ignored or prohibited.

    Advice to Management

    Spend some time to focus on what you do well and highlight those areas. Market to the types of clients that would value those areas. Ask your staff what they think about the company's strengths and prospects, as they have good ideas and very little faith in the decisions actually being implemented because they were not involved in their development.

    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
