I worked at Public Consulting Group full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Hiring model focuses on college graduates - good opportunity to get experience right out of school.

Cons

Management is compensated individually with large bonuses on a % of profit. This means lean staff (to keep costs down), in-fighting over who gets "credit" for a sale, and less focus on doing a good job for clients after a sale is made. A disfunctional family on a good day. It's truly all about the sales numbers and chasing ambulances.

Advice to Management

Focus on developing customer relationships and delivering on promises, and sales will fall in your lap from repeat business.

    I have been working at Public Consulting Group full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Strong leadership team who takes care of it's employees. ITS is the not the best place to be but overall small rewards like Christmas bonus and generous year end bonus make it a good place to start your career.

    Cons

    Disintegrated processes, the back office operations fall short and makes you wonder why the firm would not invest in cleaning up house

    Advice to Management

    Invest in employee success programs and think big (private sector); you have more potential than you give yourself credit for.
