Pros

Learn different aspects of the practice. Flexible Travel (depends on project). Good people overall.

Cons

Associate Directors are disconnected from their direct reports.
New hires are assigned to projects with no support/guidance from management.
Management tends to be reactive vs. proactive. Can be laid off or fired with very little notice.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Streamline your processes. Set obtainable goals. Lead by example and exude positivity.
Stop placing employees on a action plan without first informing them of the problem and allowing them the opportunity to correct it.
Avoid building new custom tools when out-of-the box solutions are readily available.

    Pros

    Entry-level program is great for networking and experience
    Training program is very broad and covers a wealth of topics
    The networking opportunities are absolutely invaluable

    Cons

    So much red tape to get around
    Company is US-based, but Indian-cultured
    US hires at the lower grades are grossly undercompensated

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Lots of "exceptions" are made for the Campus Hire program, consider proper compensation for employees who are generating business for you
