    I worked at Portland Group full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    None - high burn out rate; horrible management (think they own you) poor salary; "low-cost culture", they're a tin pot, moms and pops shop who hire socially inexperienced bookish staff.

    Cons

    no integrity, long hours, bad pay, boring work, anxious work environment. Hats off to Solsky! He cashed out big time!!!
    basically useless on a cv, who's heard of them. At least at serious consultancies, you get a good name on your CV.
