Pros

Fast paced environment where consultants are able to get a lot of experience quickly in their career. Overall a great place for a quick career boost.

Cons

Not easy to explore other career opportunities within the company. Company focuses on time working for the company rather than experience when reviewing promotions.

    Pros

    Still lots of people with deep technical skill. Flexible working environment. Good salary. Interesting projects to work on.

    Cons

    Everything and everybody is an interchangeable resource. No issues with wasting lots of your time (without compensation) to save 50 cents. Never ending process improvements that lead to more and more meaningless work for absolutely no business benefit. Relentless focus on cutting expenses instead of increasing revenue. Morale is really bad.
    Salary is good but other compensation (bonuses, stock etc.) has disappeared over the years.

    Advice to Management

    You can't cut costs indefinitely ... need to earn money at some point in time. Stop treating people like numbers at least not as integers. Integrity around company/personal values.
