Pros

Good training ground...
People are very smart which develops you through best practice...
If you want the opportunity and seize it, you get it...
Room to shine...
Honest feedback provided.

Cons

Some partners are ridiculous in terms of expectations but you have to push back.
Overall compensation "philosophy" means low base has to be made up by high bonus to make you on par with the rest of hte consulting market. Implies constant hustling.
Staffing is a free market so if you are not 'high value' you sink.

Advice to Management

Need to coach more
Need to communicate more. We are moving more towards that direction but have a long way to go.

    Pros

    Fast growing, great career opportunities, very down to earth people, some really good projects. Very challenging - need to prove oneself in a firm with no institutional way of doing things (it is just 4 years old after all). Blue chip clients. Pay is slightly higher than typical, for high performance people. Very international culture - more than 30 nationalities in a company of 300 people. CEO Arnab Gupta (and some of the senior leaders) are thought leaders but still open and accessible.

    Cons

    Firm leaning more and more on analytics. Very few middle managers command respect. Very few domain experts.

    Advice to Management

    Spend more time in providing feedback and grooming people, be more consistent with firm branding (internal and external)
