    Pros

    name brand recognition, large company = large network, government work is extremely relaxing at times (which can also be a con) so doesn't really have the high stress consulting vibe, work life balance is actually pretty amazing as you never need to bring your work home after you put in your 40 hours

    Cons

    large rift between senior management and lower level consultants, slow career advancement, generally lower salaries + minimal yearly salary raises, near impossible to advance through the company without putting in 10+ years, seems like company is having a hard time retaining top young (<30) talent

    Advice to Management

    even though you are a 100 year old company, you don't have to be set in 100 year old traditions. look at what other progressive companies are doing today to retain their young talent, because many many people are looking to get out

    Good learning experience, smart people to work with, recent cost cutting measures rapidly deteriorating company culture

    Pros

    get on the right project, an you may learn a thing or two. company is rapidly heading towards more like a body shop, churning through college grads and feeding people through the pipe, but you might still run into a few more smart people on the team whom you can collaborate and work on cool stuff slightly above average pay

    Cons

    you don't always get to work on the stuff that was promised when they interview you if they can't clarify what you will be working on and mention anything with the word "investment", run like hell bc as soon as the funding goes dry you go bye bye drastic cost cutting measures recently as they move everyone to a hoteling system (you do not get assigned seats and must fight with many other employes to get a seat in the office). They are trying to allow everyone to work from home, which sounds nice at first until you spend more than half of your time tracking time the people you need to talk to. Working over the VPN is completely horrible with frequent dropped and slow connection. Oh by the way, they are shutting down offices and forcing everyone to drive to DC, have fun with the commute.

    Advice to Management

    stop doing things that seem to deliberately hinder how your employee work. management is supposed to make collaboration easier, not impossible, pay serious attention to the high turn over rate, as the people who quit will spread the word about how horrible BAH has gotten
