Build more consistent ways for the contributions of consultants who shift from project to project to be recognized and rewarded in the annual performance process, and work to help them develop career enhancing relationships with Senior Executives.

    Pros

    Exposure to various clients, personalities, software. At analyst level you get OT which is a motivating factor as they will WORK you weekends and evenings due to deliverable.
