    Pros

    Great opportunity to provide the intellectual capital to mature the commercial and public sector entities in the middle east if they don't bungle it.

    Cons

    there are 12 executive level personnel that have the title of VP- this translates to 1 VP/ executive rank for every 12 people in the middle east office. Many of them were with Booz & CO prior to PWC's purchase; and they negotiated their titles, salaries, and benefits well beyond what they were/ are able to deliver in revenue, business development networks, and innovative ideas. they are paying for that by cutting salaries and benefits of the personnel that actually deliver, and know how to deliver. I assume PWC leadership is giggling at their ability to skim the cream..

    Advice to Management

    C-suite personnel at HQ have got to separate the wheat from the chaff at the upper level management and tend to the personnel that actually know how to deliver. should do this before the stockholders begin to notice more...

    Pros

    The great people you encounter, the various projects and the clients you can engage with.

    Cons

    Sometimes being a project based company can be an issue. If you're not diligent about managing your own career and your network it can be detrimental if you don't have a project.

    I worked at Booz Allen Hamilton full-time

    Pros

    The firm has wealth of Contracts to work on.
    The company has really works hard to place people from big contracts that they lose onto new work. They really did good work of keeping the rank-and-file informed during the government shutdown.

    Cons

    The firm does not put enough of its own people up for clearances.
    Raises for people who are not promoted are minimal.

    Advice to Management

    Your premiere benefits package set you apart from the other big firms. Eroding that erodes your advantage. Also, put more of your own people up for clearances and they will stay longer.

    Pros

    Ability to move within the organization from one market to another
    Lots of learning resources
    Decent reputation

    Cons

    Company is finding ways to cut costs
    Business model is changing
    Culture is shifting from a "hire to fit the firm culture" to a "hire based on skillset"
    Was white-collar company, now a grey-collar company

    Advice to Management

    Find a way to buy back the outstanding shares, go private again, scale down the company, focus on your strong suits (high-level management consulting), and hire employees based on culture fit.

    Pros

    Lots to learn, if you can find the right mentor

    Cons

    Lots of meetings that waste your time, which you have to make up for... on your own time. Lots of schmoozing just to make sure you get your just rewards... also on your own time.
