    Pros

    - Most of the people here are very smart and hard working
    - Pay is solid and on par with industry

    Cons

    - Senior leaders are very narrow minded and will not allow people below them any flexibility to try new initiatives
    - Bonus is driven way too much on utilization, which provides no incentive to do good work and only bill hours
    - Don't do anything to retain talented employees, a lot of which leave within 1-2 years of joining the firm
    - No integration of culture from the plethora of acquisitions over the last 5 years
    - No strategic vision or leadership from practice leaders or senior management - increasing bill rates and hiring more people is not a sustainable growth strategy. Also no transparency or communication from same leaders.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You need to provide more communication and transparency, as well as develop a legitimate strategy and actions to achieve the end goal. Just stating the end goal without any implementation is useless.
