Pros

Opportunity to grow professionally; great opportunity for career growth; good salary and overall compensation package; fantastic access to knowledge and qualified people.

Cons

Advisory typically requires a significant amount of travel which greatly reduces work/life balance. Traveling Monday through Thursday is very difficult. There are high expectations around client, firm, community and mentoring work. Moving to senior manager and then to partner is virtually impossible without doing all of that, unless you are a rainmaker.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Give us access to better technology. Many of us work out of the office 99% of the time. Connectivy to firm resources is laughable. Please, for the love of God, migrate to Outlook. Lotus Notes died 10 years ago.

    Pros

    - Opportunities for career advancement
    - Emphasis on ethics
    - Collaborative environment
    - Takes care of its people from a work/life perspective

    Cons

    - Very large organization and feels like one
    - Many fiefdoms (typical for the industry)
    - Medical benefit not so great
    - Limited variable compensation opportunity (unlike other pure strategy consulting firms)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Make the review process more transparent so people know what they really need to do to excel, despite the facade of transparency, the review process is still a black box
    - Give more opportunity to your leaders to progress faster, and ensure you retain them... a large firm mentality can stifle growth and frustrate your star players
    - Provide incentive to partners to collaborate as opposed to focusing on their individual metrics; a shared incentive structure that allows partners to focus on their strengths (content/business development/selling etc) works for the common good; operate as a true partnership of people with varied skills as opposed to many fiefdoms working towards their myopic objectives

    Pros

    Outstanding brand recognition opens doors.

    Cons

    Some of the old school PwC folks are very protective of their turf.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    metrics need to be reworked to change some bad behavior.
