    Pros

    Comprehensive Benefits packages with several levels to choose from Management typically communicated clearly about project goals Compensation was what I'd expect for my position with a gradual increase over time. Environment was friendly and cordial Table Tennis was always fun to play

    Cons

    Lack of growth Lower level employees treated like cattle Lack of schedule flexibility

    Advice to Management

    Investment in all levels of employee benefit the overall company. Investment in training for entry level employees to Senior Management would great help a sense of buy in from the company about caring for their workers.

    Pros

    Excellent benefits and decent work life balance Down time between projects is like free vacation Work with people with HIGH levels of experience Job security (even at junior level)

    Cons

    Reimbursement is very slow and unreliable Travel is usually 100% Mon-Thur but sometimes (Sun-Thurs or Mon-Fri) Top heavy company which does not have a set development program for Entry or Mid level consultants. Assignments are usually hit or miss. Communication inside the organization is slow

    Advice to Management

    Push for reimbursement changes not based off if client pays. Reimbursement should come from the company not from revenue. Junior consultants need some sort of development guidelines and a program to ensure useful project roles.
