Pros

On the job experience. It almost seems that you get paid to receive a business school education – except you receive it on the job. Every client engagement poses new problems and the consultants need to come up with a specific solution. However, compared to the typical strategy consulting, this is “for real” and your suggestions ARE implemented real time.

Cons

The travel and the unpredictability of the schedule. It’s very tough to plan time off as you never really know where you might get sent next. The systems aren’t the best.
Though luckily for on the road consultants, the only A&M system you really need to rely on is e-mail.

Advice to Management

Try to keep people who are on the beach busy with research etc …and other projects till billable work comes around.
