Great start for a college grad, afterwards get out.

Lead Senior Consultant (Current Employee)
Houston, TX

ProsCompetitive initial salary for a college graduate. Company demonstrates great patience in guiding young consultants to the consulting life style.

ConsNot a recognized name and assignments seems more like body shop staff augmentation than consulting work.

Salary increases are bet. 3-4 % a year. Promotion salary increases are bet 7-15%. There are few opportunities growth and development.

Top heavy with little regard for development of consultants. Training is mostly on the job. Paid training can occur if one pulls teeth and calls a favor from ones' Godfather.

After 2-3 years a senior consultant should start to move on. At 4-5 one must be gone in order to obtain the desired salary and career growth opportunities.

Advice to Senior ManagementHave a real career training and growth program. Higher better senior managers and principals that can manage and sell to a wider client base for higher fees. Principals and partners should come with backgrounds with proven sales capabilities. Restructure the company to be one consulting company instead of competing regional offices. Coordinate better with SunGard sister companies for better offerings to potential clients.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
