    Pros

    Employees are empowered to shape their future and dictate their career development.

    Cons

    While the group is large, it should take conscious effort to remove under-performing individuals to revitalize the establishment. More often than not, the Firm could be more dynamic and nimble in driving internal transformation to avoid global scrutiny of its actions.

    Advice to Management

    Quicker actions to evolve traditional practices/approach will renew its leading edge in the consulting world.
