    I have been working at The Keystone Group full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    - I've learned more here in four years than I have relative to any other portion of my career
    - The experience relative to age is unmatched
    - You become a part of the management team at clients as a result of the impactful projects and the importance relative to the company's future
    - The Directors (Partners) of the firm are smart, experienced, and willing to get in to the details to improve the bottom-line of clients. They are also people you can relate with over dinner or a drink, and who care about your personal development and happiness.

    Cons

    - Travel can be monotonous, but definitely more flexible than other consulting firms
    - Projects tend to be in "industrial" areas that don't always offer the most diverse food and hotel options
    - The hours on some projects can be hard, but this tends to ebb and flow throughout the year due to the diversity of project work

    Advice to Management

    - Continue to be a place where employees can grow their skills faster than anywhere else

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at The Keystone Group (Chicago, IL) in October 2016.

    Interview

    Keystone came to campus to recruit, and I attended its information session. Definitely go to as many events because they hire few people from each school, and their interview selection is heavily based on if they recognize your name (plus also good academics)
    First round interview was a 30 minute behavioral - nothing unexpected. There were some graphs/data sheets thrown in to gauge your analytical skills. I believed I messed up on that because I didn't read the graphs well and I didn't ask for help (which I think you should). Second rounds were a few days later, and then I believe there is another round at the office.
