    I worked at PA Consulting Group full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Gain lots of experience very quickly , a chance to try out a number of roles or sectors. Can choose the direction of your career but lots of public sector

    Cons

    Values and environment not for everyone - promotion inside the company can be difficult
    Can be hard to gain any career focus - way too much public sector work over the years

    Advice to Management

    Keep sales and delivery separate - combining them does not create excellence in delivery . Pay your consultants what they deserve
