    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    provides a great learning experience, there's a really friendly culture, the office is really nice, the business development budget is huge, lots of happy hours after work which kept morale high

    Cons

    The type of work you had to do was sometimes almost insulting (you felt like a monkey could do it). Great assignments only came along every now and then. This was likely due to the crummy economic times, however

    Advice to Management

    The whole company would be better off if the management was more discerning in hiring decisions.

    Pros

    - Strong presence within major cities across the country
    - Professionalism of employees
    - Strong backgrounds of co-workers and very intelligent consultants
    - Culture promotes working with colleagues

    Cons

    - Development opportunities outside of the firm
    - Small project teams limit the help necessary on some projects

    Advice to Management

    Increase competitiveness in salary/bonus and increase promotions to retain top talent within the firm. Outside hiring is not always necessary if you progress individuals properly.

    Great access to senior management. Management is real interested in delivering quality projects. Good pay. Projects are not super difficult but do require long hours. **Note pros and cons vary by the PRACTICE**

    Advice to Management

    Invest more in training, hiring quality people, and focus on equitable staffing.
