Pros: good pay

Worked in the L&D department. Contract job. Seems to be a lot of contract jobs and not enough perm.

I was micro managed. Trained by a young rude person. Left the job after 6 weeks.

It all depends on who your manager is. I hear others are happy in different departments.

Financial Services Experienced Advisory Associate (Current Employee), Washington, DCSeptember 17, 2014
Pros: great pay and benefits, awesome people, diverse opportunities
Cons: longer work weeks (depending on your project)
As a first job out of undergraduate school, consulting at any of the Big 4 firms will provide you with skills and experience that can be transferable to other careers (should you decide to leave). While an Associate performs similar work across all Big 4 firms, the differentiating factor is the people you are working with day in and day out. The people – more... I have worked with are genuine and intelligent, and oftentimes willing to provide mentorship and invest in your career development. – less
