Variable, interesting project options
Great reputation with clients
Honest attempt to do the right thing for customers

Cons

Mono-culture - want to have DNA match for new hires
Becoming more and more corporate, sadly
Entrenched core set of people who have undue control

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Larger is not always better
One size does not always fit all
Don't lose the 'special sauce' which made it a great place to work

    Pros

    If you don't have much talent, yet can spin doctor well, this is the place for you. Looks matter more than substance.

    Cons

    I suspect that most glowing reports here are by people in recruiting and HR. It is encouraged to spin doctor and be deceptive and many in management have no background in what they are sent to deal with at the client. However, they have the "look." The smooth car salesman appearance. That's all that matters here. The spin, the talk, and taking credit where none is due. Having worked in other consulting firms, I can't believe the amount of fluff. The only reason they sell at all is due to college connections and with competition as it is with companies who actually have substantive people, I can't imagine this is sustainable.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do you know how people actually get hired at Point B? It is getting the rep for fluffy work in the Seattle area.
