I have been working at Public Consulting Group full-time (Less than a year)
The people you work with can be really nice and helpful. They really let you find your own path in terms of what you want to do.
Management doesn't bother you too much but we do hold weekly meetings to keep everyone updated on what is happening. There is a big focus on getting more projects and a push for revenue but in a consulting firm you would expect that.
No formal training in the area you work in. If you are fresh out of college you will have to teach yourself all the ins and outs of your area: Health, Human Services, Education, etc.
Advice to Management
Create a training specific to the center of excellence for new hires.
I applied through an employee referral. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Public Consulting Group (Nashville, TN).
PCG took a while to get back to me after my initial resume submission. However, once we got in touch, I had another outstanding offer, and PCG was awesome about speeding up the process so I could work with them. I had a few conversations with the recruiter and then one interview with two men.
