If you want a long term job, don't be a consultant.
Budget, Planning & Strategy Consultant (Current Employee) –  Washington, DCJanuary 31, 2017
You have no healthcare, no paid sick days, no benefits at all.
You are able to make your own schedule though which is a huge benefit. The "consulting" culture doesn't allow for job security since you are always searching for your next contact.

No stable work as consultants have a limitation of 150 work days per fiscal year. Very difficult to organize one's life. Not clear how to obtain a promotion.

Business Analyst (Former Employee) –  Washington, DCJanuary 5, 2017
Its a big firm with big opportunities to grow within. Working within teams can be challenge as higher management is working in same company for way too long are at times hesitant to change according to the constant changing technologies in the world. But still I would rate it high for someone looking for good rate.

Great benefits, poor management
Publishing Associate (Current Employee) –  Washington, DCDecember 16, 2016
Great benefits, poor management. This is an internationally important institution, but its not run well. They have been decreasing the number of regular employees -- layoffs -- and hiring short-term consultants to replace them, in order to avoid paying full benefits.
Pros
Superb benefits for regular employees.
Cons
They are currently only offering term contracts, and depend on short-term consultants too much.

Management did not encourage growth or advancement. Micromanaged, as well as confined to a specific space to support worldwide users.
