Current Employee - Senior Consultant in McLean, VA

Pros

With world wide presence, the possibility to move anywhere appears exciting

Cons

- fluffy culture with no ethical intention to provide honest value-added services to client, rather the attitude is to cash in on the ignorance of the clients
-people leading projects , managers, sr.managers etc have no specific skill set, but their only few skills that take them up to that position are: their networking skills, gift of gab and working long hours because there are no processes defined or followed due to which they end up working long hours and in turn earn reputation of hard working consultant
-typically only two sets of people are found and only these set of people survive:college hires (who don't have required knowledge to question why certain tasks are performed so inefficiently ) and the college hires promoted to higher positions after certain period of time, so basically if you are hired after college you can grow with this firm.
- unlike other big corporations where HR is independent and unbiased , here the HR is only for placing you to different projects. , any personal issues you encounter and want HR intervention , they never take the stand and fight for right cause, rather side with partner ( perhaps due to the fact that they bring business to the firm).
-they say that 'you are your own manager' it's actually contradictory, the counsellor they assign you works like your manager with one real danger that since they are not on your project they get your performance related info from the project managers you work with, any info provided by them is believed as they have no intention to fight for you with their peers and spoil their relationship with them.
-there is too much of mediocrity which is apparent in the way projects are handled, out of box thinking will spoil your networking opportunities and thus your future. Emphasis is given to group lunches , so if you are the kind who prefers to have a quite lunch / save $, you will get branded as not social . These petty things are considered when your are evaluated for your performance.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Instill some real values when serving the client
Deempasize the culture to network so that the time spent in networking is spent on enhancing knowledge and skills which are of real use to the client than the networking skills
