Pros

There are some very smart, very talented consultants who are fantastic teachers and can thrust your career forward
Abundance of training resources and materials
Plenty of special projects that are generally enjoyable and interesting

Cons

Good analysts are punished by receiving more work
If you're not working on the weekends, it's expected that your studying
lack of respect for study time
People who have failed the exam process or are not great workers are generally moved into people management roles (instead of consultants) where they continue to be 'not great'

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Reward your best analysts with tangible benefits
Consider more goals than just billable hours for determining success (like if projects come in way under budget)
More stress on study schedules and 'exam time'

Positive Outlook
Approves of CEO
