Pros

Interesting work. Some top people. Very cost concsious management systems which serve them well in slow periods. A large number of offices provides some international insight.

Cons

Technically a second-rate consulting firm with a few exceptions. The best predictor of success at PA is learning to manage to the complex financial and performance systems and learning to share/grab sales and operations credit on a job by job basis. The place is a money making machine for senior partners, not a client-focused business. That's lip service. I've seen many partners gouge clients and pad bills because their bonus was calculated on above the line profitabilily. So overcharging (above published rates) is highly profitable.

Advice to Management

Reward merit rather than rewarding those who play the game well and develop credit-sharing arrangements. Note that new partners, despite industry expertise and past success always fail at PA because they do not have these in-place support groups.
