Good compensation, benefits, and hours. Management cares about you as a person and a merit-based promotion system. People are recognized for hard work, and colleagues are very collaborative and supportive. Little to no travel involved so you are able to feel like you live in DC and have a life outside of work.
Some of the project work is boring and it can be difficult to create change within the government. But at least with consulting, you get to switch projects every few months so you don't get too bored.
Getting an Interview

- Accepted OfferPositive ExperienceDifficult Interview
I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ months – interviewed at Censeo Consulting Group.
Submitted resume and cover letter through my university's job board and was contacted to sign up for a coffee chat, which was a pre-screen step before they selected interviewees. First-round interview was held on-campus, with a happy hour the night before to meet some employees and interviewers. First-round interview was 2 back to back cases with 2 different interviewers - average difficulty, more focused on concepts than nitty-gritty execution. I was contacted via phone less than a week later and invited to their offices in DC for a final round interview. Again, a happy hour the night before, but this time close to the whole staff was there including CEO. Final round interview were again, 2 back to back cases with MDs along with some behavioral and fit questions. Cases were challenging but not impossible. Overall extremely positive experience - they were clearly focused more on whether you could think creatively and intelligently rather than regurgitate frameworks from a case book. Employees were incredibly nice along the way, emailing to offer to answer questions or offer advice.
