  1.  

    Good early experience, but too easy to get pigeon-holed and no real long-term development opportunities

    Pros

    High Profile Clients
    Some very smart colleagues
    Travel
    Educational Support

    This is a matter of good fortune - I was lucky enough to work in a small department that allowed me to travel the world and work on blue chip clients - however some of my colleagues never left the office and never set foot into a meeting with a client or partner.

    Cons

    Heavy workloads
    Poor planning and resource management
    Poor rewards - both financial and non
    Bad talent management and opaque appraisal/promotion system

    All in all there is a steep but good learning curve in the early years - however once you reach AM /Manager level additional skill learning drops off and it becomes more a delegation and review role.

    It is very easy to get stuck and specialised - if you are doing one thing well, and it helps out thise senior to you, it can be hard to move into a new area. Senior management get very protective and possessive of good staff and this can eventually lead to them leaving the firm if they want a change.

    Identifying and managing talent is something of a weak-point in the firm sadly.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Recognise that you are losing key talented staff
    Make promotion/reward more merit-based and less "time served" based

    Negative Outlook
