    Pros

    Good consulting experience and very knowledgeable people

    Cons

    The company tries so hard to be the next Accenture or Deloitte and it is pretty similar to them in the way it is run and is operated however lacks the ability to efficiently manage the available resource pool. You overhear a lot the term lean and bottleneck by higher management which are often transalted into terminating people who were trained for their position to hire new one who have to undergo new training. If only someone could remind them that lean management is more of a operational approach rather than HR approach... So far there have been three huge layovers (60 people in January 2013, 20 people in February and 29 people in March that has been justiicaed by the need to better align their business priorities. I wonder what kind of public company is this that needs to adjust the business priorities every so often.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There are some very good educated and experienced folks, make them lead the game and not always the usual suspects who may be good at a macro level but lack the granularity. Becoming the next Deloitte won't come from the bottom of the organization pyramid but from the higher management.

    I worked at Acquity Group full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Made some lifetime friends. Had fun on the road. Felt I lived the consulting life. Learned a few things, mainly generic process and documentation (although useful). Boosted career confidence.

    Cons

    Travel. Same client the whole time. Too much of the frat lifestyle. No real concern for career progression from "mentors". People trying to pose as experts... charade.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look for people you want to keep and ensure that you really know what their goals are.
