    Pros

    Great people to work with and very rewarding work. Diversity and flexible work schedule are heavily pushed. I work a lot of hours, but I make the schedule.

    Cons

    Benefits and raises are lowering. With the economy taking a hit, it is only natural for this to go down too. Also, the company is changing it's operating model which can be difficult to figure out sometimes.

    Pros

    The degree or level of work to life balance that an employee may receive at times from the projects and opportunities one may be involved with at the time goes a long way.

    Cons

    Lack of focused and tailored roles or opportunities for consultants. Consultants are not always given a great deal of input in their future opportunities.

    Advice to Management

    Create more focused and tailored roles for direct reports. Allow consultants to have a greater degree of input in their future opportunities.

    Pros

    Good benefits, opportunities to change projects, flexible time or work from home (depending on the project), learning opportunities, easy to engage with management. You don't get laid off as soon as your contract is up, there are opportunities to find other work.

    Cons

    Annual bonuses used to be better, replaced by 6% 401k matching (still better than industry average though). Used to be able to network with more people before the reorg a few years back, but it's getting better.
