    I have been working at PA Consulting full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Smart people, one global culture, holds on to talent in down times, shows caring and compassion for people

    Cons

    Why pa is continually giving money back to shareholders is beyond my comprehension. Is this just a way to keep the cash out of chairman Jon's hands because he will waste it on another silly venture? That's it isn't it, that's the only way to keep the cash safe? Distribute it. Why couldnt we invest it in growing the core business?

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop managing for dissolution of the company. It feels like we're waiting for somebody to turn the lights off and we all go home. Couldn't we think of useful ways to spend 100mm GNP?
