    Pros

    -Complex, challenging engagements
    -Many young, smart people
    -Strong focus on training and continuing education
    -Flexible work arrangements, among other initiatives, are currently in the works

    Cons

    -Not a great work/life balance

    -Managing Directors can get away with some pretty appalling behavior if they're bringing enough business

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make sure that your consultants do not get lost; assign mentors to the young people.
