    I have been working at Princeton Consultants full-time

    Pros

    They hire physics and math majors from top-notch universities. You will find many smart and nice people there.

    Being a physicist, you will learn a lot about IT. Fast paced environment - a projects might last less than a year (for many - it might be a cons).

    Quarterly meetings are very entertaining - each employee might talk about anything which might be relevant for the firm for 5 minutes.

    They match 100% on 401K.

    You have to achieve 2000 hours a year goal. This will be below 45 hours a week, so despite others claim 50 hours, the average PCIer makes less than 45 hours a week which is not too much in my view compared to the other consulting companies.

    Cons

    If you are a physicist or a mathematician (and more than 50% are), you might feel that your skills are not used. But it really depends on your perspective, after all - if you are a physicist, why not to stay in academia.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I know, this is hard and depends on the clients, but if you hire physicists, try to get some interesting analytic job for them. Especially for the company known for optimization.

    I worked at Princeton Consultants full-time

    Pros

    - smart, hardworking coworkers (large portion from elite universities with Ph.D)
    - some exciting projects
    - super stable -- even if a project fails, you will be transferred to a different project or work "on the beach" on internal projects
    - great first job to learn the entire software development process (from initial idea to delivery and maintenance) and consulting
    - coworkers are very helpful in getting you up to speed

    Cons

    - projects and managers vary, can get stuck on uninteresting projects
    - pay could be better

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - keep employees interested in their project -- don't switch directors and projects without being 100% certain that employee is OK with the switch (while keeping in mind that it can be difficult for employee to honestly say that they don't want to work on a particular project)
    - pay better to retain employees
