Not a bad place to put in a year before moving to greener pastures...

Senior Director (Former Employee) Washington, DC (US)

Proswhen smaller, junior positions carried a lot of responsibility early in the career and gave great experience. Upward trajectory was strong when the company was growing at 20%+ per year. Rare opportunity to work with senior executives at prestigious client firms early in one's career.

Conswork-life balance is very poor, most positions at junior and mid- levels are underpaid, and the exec level tends to micromanage (lots of mandates to "drop everything and do this right now!"). Company tendency to overinvest in sales/marketing and underinvest in product/service has increased in recent years. Corporate values have definitely eroded since the IPO/pre-IPO years...

Advice to Senior ManagementAccountability for MD/ED/GM executive staff has been poor. Work-life balance needs to be improved. Employee churn at junior levels needs to be reduced or else risk poisoning your future market of middle managers and executives.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

Promotions seem to be… Advice to Senior Management: Focus on talent management- this will be a huge issue for the success… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
