    Pros

    Good work conditions. Good opportunities to start a career and get some experience. Vacation days on holidays.

    Cons

    Awful working hours. Management pushes people to work more hours than it's needed and compensation really depends on the person in charge, but most times none. No effort to compensate the skilled workers, which will cause them to leave sooner or later.

    Advice to Management

    Do your job, manage. Plan, anticipate problems, avoid making people work overtime unless it is absolutely necessary and reward them after (vacation days, money, whatever). Create new categories if you must but make an effort to keep your talents. Don't take people leaving so lightly. Update your tech. There're new tools to work with.

    Pros

    Promotions happen if you work hard. Leadership is supportive of your requests.

    Cons

    Salary for strategy consultancy is not as high as other peers, e.g. BCG, MCK, etc. Support services require you to have a lot of extra work.
