    Pros

    Challenging work, uber-smart colleagues, great benefits, good culture, brand name clients, top tier b-school talent, great pre-MBA programs

    Cons

    some of the partners can be amazingly arrogant and even verbally abusive at times - makes already challenging projects more difficult to execute.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of some of the old "tenured" partners who people can't stand to work with. These individuals are well known throughout the firm.

    A good place to work overall - now an independent part of PwC, be ready to handle some politics

    Pros

    Compensation, Some of the smartest people to work with, very often good projects. You learn a lot within a short period of time working here.

    Cons

    If you do good, news will travel fast. If you somehow are perceived to do badly,due to reasons within or outside of your control, news travels like wildfire. And bad news sticks on for a long time and you get very few second chances.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat employees with a little more respect and ensure that promotions are a little more transparent.

    I worked at Diamond Management & Technology Consultants

    Pros

    Good compensation. Excellent benefits. You know what your peers make - compensation is dictated by level, not by shady negotiations. Plenty of opportunities for advancement.

    Cons

    Poor work life balance. Expectations that you will do firm work on top of a 40-hour client work week. Up or out policy.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make sure the company remains as an independent business unit within PwC. Otherwise it will completely lose its identity and its people will leave.
