Making Partner at Andersen Will be Easier

In a concerted effort to retain talented staff, Andersen Consulting has announced that beginning next September, becoming a parter will become easier than under the current scenario.

For example, managers will be voted directly into the partnership, and an associate partner title will be available to employees who do not want to become a partner and take on the duties associated with the partner level.

Also being changed, according to company sources, is the compensation system to personnel who normally would not qualify for extended benefits and profit-sharing programs.

The changes come, sources say, as a result of the change in the top with new CEO Joe Forehand and Andersen's position in the marketplace.
