Pros

Some may like the semi-casual atmosphere, relative to other consulting companies. Good benefits.

Cons

"Analysts" are given very little responsibility or latitude, and rarely given client interaction. Professional growth is slow. New employees are quickly pigeon holed into doing one thing, alot, and focused. Not as much room to expand professional knowledge. Expect to wait 4-5 years after grad school to expect doing more business development and meeting with clients, or leading projects. Other companies give more responsibility much earlier.
