    Pros

    Almost universally a good team that you want to work with, even very late. Minimal travel, shorter projects (though sometimes too short), good office locations. Partners will push you and managers will give you more and more challenges if you do well. Learn both the "soft" skills of management consulting, as

    Cons

    Some projects are cookie-cutter and not too stimulating. Some associates have poorer experiences if they get on a few unlucky projects. External hires in the middle (consultant, manager) are generally worse than internal promotes.

    Pros

    Small shop with lean case teams results in good client exposure for associates and consultants

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hold those problem partners accountable for abuse of their teams and turnover rates.
