    Pros

    A lucky employee will have a good "Career Manager". They will try to find billable work for the individual. Free coffee, paid parking. Lots of social events.

    Cons

    The unlucky employee, especially Consultants, are like a Styrofoam cup in the waves, but can succeed in a Dog Eat Dog environment. If you don't bring in new work you are out. Forget about raises. Lucky to get a space in a bull pen, fagetabout an office. Remember always our core principals and that you are just a disciplined pawn in a corporate ecosystem, disposable as any wildlife in the way of financial gain.There are a lot of leadership battles where interests overlap or conflict. Often people are dismissed in the wake of or or as part of a power play when these political issues arise.

    Good luck, potential employee. Keep your resume up to date.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I would advise upper management, even if it impacts my role, ,my job, my life, to retract from expansions into non-core areas and return to the core businesses. The reputation that BA has earned over these ten decades is being diluted by expansion into other areas the BAH -- perhaps in desperation -- is trying to penetrate.
