    I worked at Princeton Consultants full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    - Reasonable compensation considering difficulty of the work
    - Tremendous amount of learning opportunities early on (esp. from academia)

    Cons

    - Located in NJ and must usually wait a year to transfer to NY
    - Clients and projects tend to be low in quality
    - Company sticks hard to a formula and does not stray far from it
    - Professional advancement within company is hardly worthwhile
    - Management is typically hands off (could be Pro)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I'm not sure it's in their interest to change.

    Pros

    Wonderful colleagues, who are both smart and are actually nice people. Minimal politics, flat organization, minimal bureaucracy, congenial work atmosphere.

    Cons

    Salaries below market rate, no formal training programs, career stagnation after four to five years. Work related travel that can be stressful for people with families.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Better salaries and other compensation. Flexible working hours. Easing up of the dress code. Better mentoring. Better defined career goals and paths.
