    Pros

    Lots of really smart, great people who can turn out to be really good friends as well. Generally a challenging environment where you were asked to learn a lot very quickly.

    Cons

    Pretty long hours and sometimes insensitive managers. Some of the most lucrative projects management can be really boring for the junior team members (e.g. incentive compensation administration, market research tracking reports)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't be afraid to fire low performers and spend more to get top talent.

    Travel-less consulting but still has many other disadvantages.

    Pros

    There are some very smart people here.

    Cons

    The hour requirements are consuming.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Switch to hourly pay for Consultants. The company gets paid hourly but not the employees....

    Doesn't Recommend
    Positive Outlook
    No opinion of CEO
