    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
