    Pros

    Very professional group of people - very bright, dedicated to the consulting field. There's an amazing amount of resources and when I've brought up a concern to upper management, it was addressed and taken care of.

    Cons

    My initial training could have been better but the company is addressing onboarding and has committed a significant amount of money and resources to training this year. On the other side, one gets hired here to make things happen so self motivation is key.

    Thanks for mentioning both MMC's effort to improve the new hire experience as well as the need to be self-motivated.

    Pros

    I've had a great experience working here. Management has been extremely supportive. Many opportunities to work with other teams on projects.

    Cons

    This is a large organization, while this brings opportunities, it can also make it difficult to move to different positions. Currently I am doing many different things, but my title has stayed the same.

    Advice to Management

    Management is currently implementing job shadowing, and better defining career paths. I think that the new implementations will help alleviate the cons.
