    I worked at SQS Group full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Good place to work in order to get a wide range of different industry sector experience, with some well established organisations. Provides a 'foot in the door' through the consultancy that you might not get as an individual

    Cons

    Consultancy does not get the size of project work that larger consultancies such as IBM, Accenture would get. Work is predominently small team size assignments.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Too much of a body shop, career aspirations not taken into account when client positions need to be filled
