Great name to have on resume; not a great place for young professional growth

Pros

Benefits package is great when you first start out of college. Great training opportunities, and looks GREAT when interviewing for other jobs after.

Cons

Such a large company that your manager most likely won't be in the same location as you. It is difficult to get that professional career growth when your immediate manager doesn't see you day to day work.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Work harder to keep your young hires. From my experience, most people start working there with SO much potential and interest - but slowly get defeated because there are limited opportunities for career growth - so they move on to other consultancies that pay more $$.
