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

Pros

You will learn a lot, you will be tested, and you will come out ahead of the game. At least that's how it worked out for me. To anyone in IT I would say working at PCG could be a great opportunity to expand your skill set and gain exposure to an enormously heterogeneous infrastructure that you won't see at other similarly sized companies. Your soft skills will be refined and developed in ways they won't be at many other places.

Cons

If you are thin skinned, sensitive, insecure or otherwise unable to handle a complex and demanding work culture then you might not like it, but then again if you would describe yourself with any of those terms you might be in the wrong business. If you stay here longer than 3-5 years you are doing yourself a serious disservice. The company isn't interested in developing and retaining IT talent.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

None really, what they're doing seems to be working just fine for them.

    Pros

    Free Coffee, Gym, great location
    A handful of decent people

    Cons

    Most employees are looking out for #1 and that does not include you. Have to be ready to stab coworkers in the back to get ahead. HR department is a mess, no one is actually happy to help, cheap, and careless.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Wake up and smell the coffee! Just because someone has been here longer doesn't make them better.

    You need to spend money, to make money.
