    I have been working at USC Consulting Group

    Pros

    Getting hotel and airline points.
    There is a chance to learn about different industries.
    Beach time, often get weeks of not working.

    Cons

    Upper Management people are intelligent and capable of the job, but have no people skills in general.
    Travel Sunday only to come back Friday night.
    Your co-workers will do anything to promote themselves.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't leave...because I don't want to work with you again.

    I worked at USC Consulting Group

    Pros

    Pays more than unemployment, barely.
    Will hire anyone, and if you have any willingness to learn, you're way ahead of 90% of the people that work here.
    If you even know what a pivot table is, you're ahead of 99% of the people here.

    Cons

    There are too many to list all of them, but here are a few:
    Year after year of negative growth, yet the "let's do the same thing as last year" mantra continues!
    Management is ancient and fails to adapt to the market
    High turnover because the people who want to be something are not appreciated and they leave
    The only people that stay longer than 4 years are the people at the top of the shrinking pyramid
    Senior management doesn't know you or care about you
    Bonuses shrink each year with no explanation
    Shrinking health benefits each year
    Two CEO's - haha, really? Firm only has 50 people!
    5-6 days travel (4 day work weeks don't exist here)
    Trained by getting thrown into the fire - no training program exists unless you seek them out yourself
    Each year senior management bids lower and lower to increase sales, and holds their younger managers responsible for hitting nearly impossible goals
    Excessive waste by management - offices in multiple locations that are from when the firm was at over 200 people
    Every project is in middle of nowhere and you'll be loving the Best Western and Motel 6's
    Bonus structure is misleading
    Senior management is disruptive when visiting the project and often leads to chaos for the Project Manager who is left to deal with the consequences
    Promotion is based on who hangs out with the partners late night, rather than the talent of the individual at his position
    Fast track promotion to those that will agree to go to some awful place in the world where there is no electricity, etc. in the hotel room.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You must learn to adapt with technology and market conditions. One, there is no need for two CEO's ever, much less when the company has decreased in size by 75% in the last 5 years.
