    Pros

    Several smart people, variety of projects. You will learn a lot very quickly, as a consequence of both.

    Cons

    People are trained to be managers rather than leaders. They are put in charge of others whose professional destinies they control. This creates a toxic culture of self promotion and self preservation. Dissenting opinions are not respected/accepted and those that conform, jump when asked, and follow unquestioningly, are considered effective contributors (and hence promoted). This is a terrible culture for a consulting company that should be innovative.

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to be debiased. Managers are not without flaws - some (many) do manage upwards better than they do downwards. Career decisions, theirs and of those below them, should involve 360 feedback.
