I have been working at Booz & Company full-time (less than an year)

Pros

-Great brand name to have on resume
-Good experience and exposure, if you can network to the right projects
-Solid mentorship, if you can find the right people to look out for you

Cons

-Requires knowing the right people: promotions not based on merit and project staffing is not based on skill set
-Staff consistently treated as a resource: little focus on developing talent, high burn out rate from being overwork, and often treated as less than humans, with a very passive aggressive and acidic culture
-Extremely cyclical business cycles: the lows are extremely low with more than 50% of staff on the beach. this resulted in a significant chunk of my starting class fired at 6 months into the job.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

-If you want to hire and retain talent, treat your people well

    Pros

    Decent training and development opportunities

    Cons

    Very clear distinction between client staff and support staff. If you're part of the latter you often feel inferior. Very different pay scales between the two. Not much upward mobility. Promotions are rare and your manager has to "make a case" in front of a committee in order for you to get even the slightest promotion.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Motivate employees, have employees socialize among each other, improve morale, improve trust among employees.
