Washington, DC | 2014 | VERIFIED EMPLOYEE

Uppers

Great People, Great reputation, and Honest people.

Downers

Not everything has been developed for new practice areas so a lot of time is spent building the infrastructure.

Comments

One must be in the frame of mind to be a 'consultant'. I believe someone out of university is simply not capable of knowing if they could be successful in this type environment. One must have experience in something otherwise the knowledge base is shallow. At A&M, the knowledge base is simply the top of the game. People here have 'been there, done that, and can help other companies and divisions develop their infrastructures without making anyone feel uncomfortable or weary of consultants. This is not easy, this is not glamorous but it is challenging, rewarding most of the time, and you do make or break your own reputation.
