Some of the senior consultants are extremely kind and supportive.

Some of the consultants are actually devils in disguise.

    Well-regarded firm but the place does not live up to the promise.

    Pros

    * Strong brand (outside USA)
    * High quality assignments
    * Global training program
    * High remuneration
    * Variety of assignments

    Cons

    * Very political: the promise of "one firm" is not delivered as everyone tries to feather their own nest
    * Lockstep remuneration: pay is based on tenure not merit: senior partners "cruise"
    * Consultants ("pre-partners") bring in 10x what they are paid ie would get paid more in other firms
    * Totally subjective performance review system
    * No client satisfaction surveys
    * Almost unknown brand in the US

    Advice to Management

    Remove some of the office leaders who bring in work but don't care about developing their people.

    Pros

    - Work is around senior executives of big companies, so big impact.
    - Global collaboration and support makes work interesting.

    Cons

    - conservative and traditional. Internal promotions are limited within consultants or within support staff, virtually no cross-class opportunities.

    Advice to Management

    Obama is a good president, even though he did not have the classical track record.
