    Negative Outlook

    Pros

    - The people are genuinely nice.
    - Easy entry point into the consulting industry.
    - Use Nous to get into the industry and then move on to better things ASAP.

    Cons

    - They pay significantly below market rate.
    - You will only work in three industries: government, higher education and health.
    - There is no structured career path - no one at Nous has gone from Consultant all the way through to Principal.
    - They love using buzzwords "Big Data", "Agile" and "Lean" to sell things but no-one has any real idea about them because no-one has actually ever worked with them.
    - The feedback process is opaque and you have no concrete idea how much your charge out rate (and pay) will move.

    Advice to Management

    - Set direction with clients and don't just cower to their every whim. Actually teach the younger consultants rather than hand wave and use buzzwords.
