I have been working at Knowledge Consulting Group

Pros

The vast majority of Knowledge Consulting Group's focus in on IT Security services to government agencies. If that is what you do, this company is a great place to work. They have had a lot of growth with new contracts in 2009 so there seems to be more opportunity to advance and grow into other contracts or areas within IT security. Because KCG is so niche within the IT Security field, it allows the employees to information share and work with each other. KCG is a small company so you are not “just a number” like you see with a lot of the larger companies. The company’s benefits are very competitive to others as well.

Cons

If you are not an IT Security professional, you might find the “niche” of the company limiting to your career growth or advancement.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Although communication is fairly good, it could be improved. The only advice I would give to management is to broaden communication.

    Pros

    The salary and benefits are competitive for this line of work. KCG will sponsor you for a security clearance if the job calls for it.

    Cons

    Although they call themselves a "consulting group" this is a relatively lean organization with minimal overhead. Don't count on any beach time -- they'd rather spend the money on competitive salaries.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to provide more collaboration tools between consultants. A message board, wiki, or email list would help with this. Also, consider investing in a more robust intranet.

    I have been working at Knowledge Consulting Group

    Pros

    When I joined KCG the team was excellent from senior management, client supervisors and more. They payed for training that was a big benefit to my career.

    Cons

    Things seemed to go down hill after a year. Certain key personnel left the company such as an excellent senior manager and two client supervisors.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Support your technical people more. That seem to have went down hill after a few key people left the company. Don't want this company to become a high turn over company.
