Pros

Relationships that you build Diversity of work that you can do

Cons

Overtime requirement Hard to get recognized because the company is so large. Have to move heaven and earth to get a 1 rating. Do not go into the Washington Federal Practice. There is little movement with various projects. Very difficult to find engagements to go to if you do not know the right people. Live close to the office that you are tied to. If you live far you will not be successful at this firm. They expect you to be able to come to the office for every little event or training. Living 75 miles away from your home office is a death sentence and no one will care but you. No work/life balance Very arrogant staff (many have the we are better than you attitude) Make sure you come in a the right level. I came in at the highest Associate level possible and did not get a raise for 2 years until I was promoted.

Advice to Management

Understand the demographics of your staff. Stop hiring people just to hire them. Make sure you have engagements to place people. Do not hire someone on wishful thinking

    Pros

    Every consulting firm has its own mertis & demerits, i would rate this place above average just for its core values and the culture.

    Cons

    might become difficult if you are new to the organization and dont know enough people, or work in a location that doesnt have people from your group.


  2. Good place to start career
