    Pros

    As a Business consultant, you get access to many processes and info's about mature companies. This kind of knowledge is instrumental to have a fast track introduction into the "real business" after the university

    Cons

    The issue is with all Consultancy firms is that they are tending to have expertize on everything and to reuse same recommendations on and on. Not all companies are like that, but my opinion is that the majority of them are like that

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I would say that the Consultancy companies should be focused in one or two areas, not to all kind of business

    Pros

    cant think of much at this moment

    Cons

    Replace experienced people with college grads who know nothing about the business just to save margin and looks good (more ppl on the team). The management group has gone down hill compare with few years ago.

    In a company of this size, there are too many layers of management.

    Cons

    Fix the recruitment process so recruitement team do not lie and get the people
     provide opportunities to the people to grow and provide responsibilities to the people as per the experience
    have a proper review system based on deliverables, not based on somebody feedback even if he is not experienced enough. Have seen many cases even person is not competent enough(doesn't know much about domain or technology), he/she is getting promoted and then they lead us. Promotions and opportunity given 90% in cases with only sources or approaches (if your supervisors likes you). performance, experiences do not matter. feedback system is totally irrelevant.
