I worked at Public Consulting Group full-time (more than a year)Pros
There are people at this company that are terrific and an absolute pleasure to work with. Terrific place to hide if you can stomach the place. Some of the offices are nice. The company gets 5+ year government contracts which make it a very stable company to work for.Cons
Managers are not trained and most are promoted because they can sell. Most lead from remote locations with little or no hands on supervision. Fly in, say hi and fly out. As a result, good people leave and squatters stay (sorry to all my colleagues). Bonuses are ENTIRELY discretionary. And they will find any reason not to give you the max. Reviews are subjective and inconsistent.
IT is underfunded and you spend too much time explaining to customers why it is broken. Any money spent has to come out of the manager's pocket (literally) and remember that manager is typically a salesperson.
There are two tracks: Consulting which is a another term for salesperson and they are given tons of work, and are the only ones who get promoted or bonuses. Technical which is another term for the working class. No promotions, no raises, no bonuses and expected the be professional at all times.Advice to ManagementAdvice
I would give advice, but I know for a fact that Bill neither cares nor will do anything differently.
I guess one piece of advice would be to not change a thing. By being a really bad place to work, you make it easier to hire your good people and to steal contracts from you so you can chase more.Doesn't RecommendNeutral OutlookDisapproves of CEO
