    Pros

    Diverse consulting projects
    Well known clients

    Cons

    1. Not flexible enough regarding the pay / additional holidays / bonuses
    2. Managers often fail to delegate work to junior staff efficiently, thereby leaving a gap in the learning opportunities given to junior members of the team.

    Advice to Management

    1. As this is a consulting team - and not an Audit team, it would be advantageous to have pay/benefits similar to other consulting firms (more flexibility) if you are to effectively retain talent.
    2. Managers should spend more time training junior staff / put in place systematic project training
