    Pros

    Benefits and Compensation are good and inline with job requirements

    Cons

    Management is fraught with problems. Entirely to much nepotism and advancement is meted out based on who you know and how much you are willing to boot lick. Promotion is given on the basis of who your drinking buddies are.

    Advice to Management

    Look hard at the EPM group and clean out the nepotism and despots.

    Pros

    You'll get meaningful work to do eventually
    Great hands-on implementation coaching experience

    Cons

    Monday-Thursday travel every week is brutal
    Analysts and associates do almost all of the work
    Coaching can definitely be lacking
    Young folks probably can't go from new-hire to manager in less than 6 years. That's a long time to live on the road.

    Advice to Management

    retaining organic, skillful managers should be a top priority.
