    Pros

    - Low travel requirements for "consulting"
    - Many local offices in the DC region, ongoing efforts to minimize commute time

    Cons

    - Firm struggles to identify, challenge, and promote top talent
    - Difficult for staff to gain access to projects that align with their interest
    - Firm has very few true "consulting" projects, mostly staff augmentation projects for government agencies
    - Less than $5,000 of assistance annually to pursue an advanced degree such as an MBA in return for 2 years service is a bad deal

    Advice to Management

    Return to your consulting roots. Staff augmentation projects only train future government employees well, not business consultants nor future partners for your firm. Encourage more young staff to pursue professional degrees by funding such development.

  2. A company with a lot of people who are both smart and driven to succeed

    Pros

    One of the top management consulting firms in the public sector, highly respected firm, good work life balance, good pay and excellent benefits, flexible work arrangement, global footprint,

    Cons

    Bureaucratic now that the firm is public, some out of touch management, no more eCap 401K contribution program, high exposure to federal work leaves the firm vulnerable to sequestration

    Advice to Management

    Allow the organization to be more meritocratic
