    I worked at PA Consulting Group full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    meritocracy. i enjoyed working across many different clients in a short period and gaining a lot of experience. I was promoted every year for 4 years in a row.

    Cons

    low salaries (too much pay deferred). the pay structure causes many to want to move elsewhere so that they are not disadvantaged in applying for mortgages

    I worked at PA Consulting Group full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Many hard working staff and consultants. Client teams do care about producing quality results

    Cons

    The firm is run to maximize profits for very senior partners which I accept. The difficulty is that the good old London boys club do not know how to grow a business. In a recent partner in waiting class one of the old boys showed a graph of the history of top line growth of PA and other consulting firms. PA dramatically underperformed all other good consulting firms in growth. In the down times PA says they hold on to staff. The graph clearly showed that was a lie as PA fired ahead of the curve. So we underperform growing and cut faster than anyone in the lean days. What does that say about our senior partners?

    Advice to Management

    Retire!
