Pros

Pay was competitive within the industry and location. Promotions were good up until the federal shut-down which impacted lots of current and future business.

Cons

"Strategic wins" for new business resulted in pay cuts, pay freezes, and terminations. In order to be promotable employees have to be fully billable and put in additional time (sometimes up to 20+ hours a week) working on various internal projects.

    Pros

    Flexible schedule, big firm, lots of opportunities to network and learn new things

    Cons

    A lot of duplicate effort done by different teams, no transparency, not enough qualified career managers. Too many cuts in benefits, change in the amount of time to become vested, lowered the 401K match, too much HR and managerial involvement with health care issues -

    Advice to Management

    Invest in what you have instead of letting people go - doing a mass hire of younger people who will attempt to do the work for less.

    Pros

    The opportunities for growth are limitless,the company values come from the Old Guard with continuous growth and partnership building.the benefits are the answer to todays challenges with offering needed benefits for everyone.

    Cons

    If you don't like true progress,a level playing field,good structure,limitless training opportunities,true product design,development,testing,commercialization and the ability to solve challenging both national and global business challenges then it wouldn't be a good place to work.

    Advice to Management

    I once read and this isn't verbadom," there can be no building or creation without structure, you only get chaos. If you like organization,planning and strategy with the creation of new platfforms and building great teams with good chemistry,then I'd look at Booz Allen and Hamilton's Model and look at the Founders going back to 1914.
