    Pros

    One of the few industries where you are able to feel good about what you do. Individuals are great, knowledgeable, and customer focused.

    Cons

    Office politics and old-boy/girl networks make it so hard/good work is not relevant to being promoted or assigned a good project. Some managers/leaders are indecisive, causing more problems.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay attention to the culture you have built and are building. Make a decision and stick with it and your team.

    Pros

    nice telecommuting option. free snacks once a month. friendly co-workers.

    Cons

    Sales team that consistently under sell services and then expects consultant to complete work as unbillable. unrealistic time lines. not fore-though into travel planning ( I once went from Boston to Sacramento to Virginia to Portland Ore, back to Virginia and back to Boston in a 10 day period because the services manager could be bothered to work out the engagement schedule). Benefits and salary are below average. The bonus structure is set up to be impossible to reach the top tiers without killing yourself. For example, if you take time away from billable work to attend training, you'll miss your utilization number and therefore, your bonus is impacted.
    Communication from senior management doesn't exist.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    learn to balance your commitment to shareholders with the need to treat your employees better than 3rd work country factory workers.
