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.

    Pros

    KCG is a small company and treats it employees with respect. Most of the managers are competent and provide for a good work life balance. My work environment has been great and I really enjoy the people I work with. KCG is also pretty good about providing technical training and reimburses for certification testing costs. Career growth is available if you are interested in a management track.

    Cons

    Career opportunities are limited because of the limited scope of contracts that KCG pursues. These are primarily security contracts involving C&A work for government clients. The bonus policy is convoluted at best. A technical expert career path is not currently available from KCG.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to expand the variety of contracts you pursue. Implement a technical expert career track.

    Great place to work for IT Security professionals

    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.
