    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

    Great flexibility for working remote and on site. Family balance is up to you but can easily overwork.

    Its a consulting gig, expect lots of different issues and opportunities.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Create better company culture via conferences or some other get together s.

    Pros

    Company is doing well. Interesting work and the people are not hyper-aggressive. I like that I am left alone to run my engagements. There is a caring aspect to the company, which I have rarely seen in large companies. But I have seen multiple instances where people with personal stuff are supported. This is part of the culture.

    Cons

    The back office tools (expense reports, purchasing, etc) are really poor. HR systems are just so-so. The company does not grow great managers.

    Pros

    Very easy to reach anyone in the company. Great pay. I enjoyed the job. Lots of access to various clients.

    Cons

    Work life balance would be the number one concern. It's a consultant gig; expect no less or more.

    Pros

    There is a lot of flexibility to work either from home or at the client site. 4 weeks of Time off.

    Cons

    The budget for Training to enhance your skills is scarce. One has to get trained on their own. Personal Internal team building is a challenge because of the kind of business we are in (Geographical spread).

    Work life balance can be difficult with traveling and other demands faced on critical IT projects. Difficult to meet sales KPIs while also meeting delivery/billed utilization metrics.
