I have been working at Princeton Consultants full-timePros
They hire physics and math majors from top-notch universities. You will find many smart and nice people there.
Being a physicist, you will learn a lot about IT. Fast paced environment - a projects might last less than a year (for many - it might be a cons).
Quarterly meetings are very entertaining - each employee might talk about anything which might be relevant for the firm for 5 minutes.
They match 100% on 401K.
You have to achieve 2000 hours a year goal. This will be below 45 hours a week, so despite others claim 50 hours, the average PCIer makes less than 45 hours a week which is not too much in my view compared to the other consulting companies.Cons
If you are a physicist or a mathematician (and more than 50% are), you might feel that your skills are not used. But it really depends on your perspective, after all - if you are a physicist, why not to stay in academia.Advice to ManagementAdvice
I know, this is hard and depends on the clients, but if you hire physicists, try to get some interesting analytic job for them. Especially for the company known for optimization.RecommendsPositive OutlookApproves of CEO
Getting an Interview
Getting an Interview
- Application Details
I applied online. The process took 1+ week – interviewed at Princeton Consultants.Interview Details
I submitted an online application & got a phone call from their human resources consultant later that day. He asked me a few questions including my strongest programming language, my level of skill in that language on a 1-10 scale, my expected salary, whether I was alright with wearing a suit to work everyday, whether I was alright with significant travel. He told me I seemed like a strong candidate for the job & asked me to take an online reasoning assessment. I took the assessment and scored well & he told me he would contact me soon regarding next steps. He didn't get back to me for about 10 days, so I emailed him & he told me that the firm had decided to undertake a hiring freeze, but that he would get back to me if/when the freeze was over. He was very friendly about it & offered to put me in contact with some other firms he consults for that might be good fits for my background.Interview Questions
