Pros

They have money, and lots of resources. If you're a go-getter, the world is your oyster.

Cons

There can be a lot of bureaucracy. Sometimes hours have to be filled with mundane tasks. It's not QUITE as easy to get a new position within the company as one would think--particularly not if one is at client site.

Advice to Management

Improve mentoring programs to reach out to prospective upcoming talent. Leadership development shouldn't be merely an option; it should be built into the system.

    Pros

    They still have a family oriented view of their employees. I have a lot of respect for their CEO, who still shows in interest in his employees.

    Cons

    Career advancement is difficult, but this is common in the consulting industry now.

    Advice to Management

    Provide clarity in career guidance, as this is somewhat lacking at this time.

    Pros

    - Smart co-workers
    - Good internal support
    - Well-run company
    - Opportunities for on-the-job professional development

    Cons

    - Eroding culture - lack of investment in employee professional development is killing morale
    - Hard to collaborate with hoteling system
    - Limited social interaction with peers when you're on client site
    - Focus on federal clients can be frusturating and unrewarding for top performers
    - Senior Leadership focused on billable hours, versus other more progressive measures of productivity and contribution to firm (e.g. business development or practice development)

    Advice to Management

    Beware of brand dilution: re-invest in hiring and retaining top talent; look for opportunities beyond the federal space
