Good Company to work for as it is one of the big 4 consulting companies.Currently I am working as an ERS Senior Consultant in the Cyber Risk practice in Chicago.

Worked on developing & documenting Security Strategies and Procedures using tools like Share point and Visio. Corporate trainings have been a part of my job.

Unfortunately, there was no stability and balance in workload. Everyone was just optimistic and worked until they got burnt, fragile or weak each day. Perhaps, it was a college mentality. Peers and colleagues are all accountants and attorneys, but they are not experienced managers. There was poor management. No one had a decent/healthy work-life balance, regardless of what level you worked at. Associates and seniors spent their free time studying for the CPA exam or recovering from work. I recommend living close to the office. I was also grateful that the firm ordered a delicious dinner for us each night.

Management doesnt care about you. Your peers will be awesome especially because theyre youre age. Staffing is horrible sometimes. You get screwed over if you get placed on sucky projects that dont help you advance.
DU is fun, variety of clients, flexibility SOMETIMES
Management Consulting, Military Hierarchy, Partners do not respect you
Senior Consultant (Current Employee) – New York, NY – June 6, 2016
Pros - You can learn a lot if you look for the right projects and engagements. You can work with some incredibly smart and dedicated people. Cons - Partners do not care at all about their employees. They actually do not care at all about your career progression. It is a partnership so it is cutthroat and people will step all over each other.
