    Sometimes feel disconnected from the company when fully based at client site
    Within the graduate program there is a lot of mis-communication that causes issues

    Pros

    Excellent training plan, work with the best people and learn from highly intellect and experienced employees.

    Will provide good training and invest in their people.

    Cons

    Difficult to move around or to different location, sometimes feel like a resource which slows down career progression.

    Pros

    Flexi-working possible
    If lucky enough, some projects can be very good experience and fun

    Cons

    Lot of legacy, stagnant employees who spoil it for everyone
    Poor governance leading to a big disconnect between management teams and consultants
    Time that has been spent by a person in the company is more important than skills and capabilities
    Very political at mid and senior levels
    Lower pay compared to other similar companies, much lower compared to bigger companies
    Lost some pretty big clients recently, leading to highly stressful environments (needless amounts to innocent bystanders)
    Big push to send jobs offshore to reduce costs (Pro if you work in India, Con if you work anywhere else)

    Advice to Management

    You need to look at your governance structure and performance review processes. Many good employees have left, and there's a reason why you are stuck with the ones who are still there.

    Pros

    Good work life balance compared to some consulting houses. Too reliant on data, which is wrong, lots of people kidding themselves

    Cons

    Pay is far below companies of a similar ilk, do 2 years then leave

    Advice to Management

    Why do you have an insane amount of VPs sitting around doing nothing yet pile the pressure on joe blogs who misses 1 day of fee paying work?

    Great training, interesting projects, good people

    Cons

    Lower pay that others, long-term distant projects

    Increase the pay for graduates who have been on the scheme a long time, otherwise there is too much competition from elsewhere

    Pros

    Exposure to big companies and opportunities in various roles

    Cons

    Internal change structures can bite sometimes.Once you've finished the 2 years you might still not know what you want to specialise in due to business demand outweighing personal choice of what you would like to do.

    Advice to Management

    The graduates on the technology programme could do with a better structure and a wider option for various roles rather than the standard PMO or Jr Project management.
