"Flawed, Just Like Any Other Company"

Current Employee - Consultant in Chicago, IL

Pros

Great people (for the most part)
Ability to work independently and take the lead on projects even if you're an entry level employee
Work/life balance - again, for the most part. It's great to go home on Thursdays, get bonuses for out of town stays, etc.
Consistent review process, strong professional development and opportunities to advance
Doing great work for clients and making a difference

Cons

Compensation not competitive
Some managing directors are incompetent and rude to lower level employees
Managing directors can overshoot targets when trying to sell a project, create smaller budgets than necessary, etc. and the brunt falls on lower level employees to meet unrealistic expectations
Staffing can be haphazard and makes little sense; unnecessary travel when work can easily be done at home
No coordination between some project managers and functional team managers, duplication of work, etc.

Advice to Management

Don't promote people to MD level who are obviously not competent at that level. Promotions should not be based on who you know and buddy-buddy relationships, but on the quality of your work and relationships with clients.
