    Pros

    My group is full of hardworking smart people who are genuine in their commitment to clients. People live the company values: Clients first, collaboration, professional excellence, integrity and respect.

    I would like to see more communication between groups. There have been some post-merger growing pains but I feel we are now getting to be one integrated company.

    Pros

    You couldn't ask for a better group of coworkers. From analyst to senior consultant, everyone is willing to help you out. Everyone is highly intelligent so it keeps you motivated to produce the best work possible.

    Cons

    As with consulting in general, you have sporadic work weeks. They has been an increase in the number of long work weeks. This is partly because of the office being currently under staffed.
