    I have been working at DB&A full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    You will learn a lot in a very short period of time on the fly. Hotel and airline points are good and travel is fun at first. The pay is decent but not worth the hours and lost time at home you put into the projects. As for benefits don't worry, you won't have time to go to the doctor's office. If you can learn well on the fly and have a good project manager you might make it more than 4 months.

    Cons

    No work life balance, Flew Sunday and Friday until midnight, worked every day from 7 am to 5 pm and another 4-6 hours every night in the hotel just to try to stay ahead of what the project managers want (which is never clear.) Everyone I started with and knew in corporate headquarters is gone after 5 months. The company uses people for everything they can and gets rid of them with a subjective performance review before 4 months so they don't have to pay unemployment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work life balance was non existent, training program needs a lot of work (modules are all common sense and waste time, don't make good use of your skills and no on the job training existed, consultants are expected to ask all the right questions (of other low level consultants) to get answers when they don't even know what to ask.)

    There is a large gap between what the recruiters see and what the project managers want. Recruiters will take anyone with management experience. Project managers set poor examples and expect you to be an accountant well versed in giving presentations as well as a subject matter expert on everything.

    Sending a new staff member out of the country for a first project should be a big no no. It's hard enough to start a new job in the states much less out of the country where they won't be able to call loved ones.
