    Pros

    Since it's a large company, there are a lot of resources available to you, on the job and off it. The benefits are really good. You can gain a lot of valuable experience in a short amount of time.

    Cons

    Competitive services industry gets translated to a very competitive work environment. The company stretches its employees to the limits, taking on unreasonable engagements and expecting high performance 110% of the time. Although this varies a lot by team, I think overall you are expected to put your personal life on hold any time a project requires your time at work. You are constantly evaluated in relation to your peers, even if it's an unfair comparison (you work on different kinds of projects, for example).

    Advice to Management

    Take on fewer engagements and provide your employees more balance.


  2. A wide range of experiences

    Pros

    Variety of clients and types of work; experience with companies of all 'shapes' and sizes; significant professional growth opportunity; team environment

    Cons

    Many days/weeks of long hours (14+ per day), including weekends & holidays; significant travel expectations, irrespective at times of personal needs or concerns

    Advice to Management

    Don't discourage participation in business development activities in favor of charge-ability; actually respect earned time off, don't just preach to
