Pros

Clear career path; smart people and good resources to complete your job. Teaches a number of very useful skills. Great training.

Cons

Poor selection of cases; some incompetent partners; boring cases sometimes that are more project management than strategy. Hours billed matters a lot.

Advice to Management

Fire poor partners and don't take cases that don't add sufficient value to the client - it's demoralizing for the team.
