Pros

The people in my office were cheerful and friendly. Everyone was willing to help if I had a problem. It was also a pretty social office and we would all go out as a group to lunch or to an event on Friday.

Cons

There was a lot of moving around in the office since there was a change in management.

    Pros

    - Solid starting salary and good fringe benefits. Everyone in the consulting workforce starts with 5 weeks vacation per year, and people who are staffed remotely can work from home on Fridays. Employees can also purchase company shares at a 15% discount. - Good "launching pad" for your career - you can gain a wide range of experience across industries and can learn to use new technology platforms in a relatively short time period. This is especially useful when looking for a new job (I regularly receive emails through LinkedIn from recruiters who are actively looking to hire analysts out of the consulting industry).

    Cons

    - Meager raises. They'll say raises are tied to company performance, but only analysts/consultants take a hit when the company under-performs. Managers have still gotten 10-20% raises while analysts have been getting 2-4% for comparable performance reviews. - Bonuses are capped at 4% for analysts (again, managers and above can get upwards of 25% in yearly bonuses) - The company pays lip-service to "work-life balance" when promoting more local engagements, but then demand that locally staffed employees come into the office on Fridays. It's clear that their push for "work-life balance" is really about reducing expenses, and is not rooted in any genuine concern for employees.

    Advice to Management

    - Don't tell top-performing analysts that they're getting a 2% raise because of subpar quarterly earnings, then turn around and give managers 25%. - If you really care about work-life balance, allow ALL employees to work from home on Fridays, not just remotely staffed ones.

    Pros

    A very large consulting firm with various service lines. Entry level consultants may have access to all different types of projects. It is good place to learn and to grow.

    Cons

    The company is entirely focus on information technology consulting, so for those who wants to become a business consultant, it might not be the best place.
