    Pros

    - Very good people on the higher levels of the organization
    - Smaller compared to other firms, which means it's less about numbers and you get to know the people
    - Lots of opportunities to shine if you are ambitious
    - Good initial training

    Cons

    - A lot of government clients (very slow paced)
    - Not the best brand, which means a lot of the top talent don't go there
    - Very pressed for price, which drives down flexibility and perks

    Advice to Management

    - Focus on the brand in universities

    Pros

    Work culture is relaxed, and people are generally friendly and open. Compensation is also generally on par with industry, on the positive side.

    Cons

    Getting your review through is an active effort you have to manage with your manager. You have to make sure everyone talks to everyone else in order to advance your case even in the junior levels. Hard work will not be recognized by default, you must always broadcast and play politics.

    Pros

    Work - life balance is a perk thanks to the limited amount of travel required.
    Benefits package covers RMT and Physio in the amount of $500 per annum.
    Pay scale is on the higher side of industry standards. This may be driven mainly by the nature of the client accounts pursued, who on their turn compensate employees at top of the market.

    Cons

    Training is limited to the bare minimum of mandatory compliance with labor and privacy laws.
    The benefits package is quite basic covering 80% of select vision and dental needs.
    No system is perfect and performance management incentive system is definitely flawed. Annual zero-sum rating mechanism distributes the incentive bucket in a round table (or phone call) exercise, where the stronger executive gets to reward his/her direct reports with the highest rating, thus the highest incentive percentage.

    need to have a minimal reorganization.

    Pros

    A lot of opportunities for networking.
    You will look/work in the kitchen of different companies.
    Pleasant atmosphere.

    Cons

    Internal systems are not of a quality you would expect. Often very outdated, not supporting many platforms. You have to push people to get them to work for you (career advancement).

    Advice to Management

    Actively help employees to further their career. Not only by putting a website up.
    Update internal systems (not everyone is on IE).

  10. Excellent pay and benefits

    Pros

    Excellent pay and benefits. Great location and office is a nice place to work. Good cafeteria on site. Great co-workers!

    Cons

    Company is on contract, so future work is dependent upon winning contract renewals. Management doesn't always seem aware of what client wants in order to ensure contract renewals.

    Advice to Management

    Need to engage better with employees and client. Client seems happy with work being done, but not always happy with management.
