    Pros

    If you can find the work you're looking for, it is an excellent place to build a career. Very good benefits, relatively good pay, great people, tons of perks. Consulting can be a crp shoot...some colleagues live a dream life on awesome projects, travel to great places, work with awesome people, get great dinners at Michelin restaurants...others have rotted at the same place for years with no perks. All depends on your client/industry/boss. There is reasonable flexibility to change, the groups are all just very specific other than strategy. You can spin your experience in any way to land in just about any industry after a few years which is great. good brand and you will make good connections. only serve the top industry leaders as clients as well.

    Cons

    Pay could be better, especially for straight out of college. too broad of a range in performance/opportunity and that is not reflected in year end pay at all. Awful performers get 0-4%. Absolute top performers who work tirelessly and do tons of internal/external work max out at 10-20%. Promotions can be political. Lot of deadweight in the company. Work is extremely regulatory focused, systems/compliance/tech focused. Very few excited management consulting/strategy projects that college students look for out of college.
