    Good place to work

    Senior Consultant (Current Employee) Chicago, IL (US)

    ProsHigh level of integrity and quality of service.

    ConsLots of employees with very long tenure but culture is changing to one that does not encourage long tenures. Accountability is increasing but compensation is not adjusting.

    Advice to Senior ManagementIt's encouraging to see people who don't make the cut let go. This was not the case in the past. Rewarding those who stand out is needed too and that is not happening much. Survival is not a great incentive.

    ProsGood work life balance. People in the workplace friendly and approachable. Canteen is nice with fantastic choice on the menu.
