      Pros

      Strong parent company with a great vision and history. People know the company if they are in the industry. Benefits are strong and pay is on par with the big 4. Upper management are clear about what they are trying to accomplish. Consulting Division is young and still trying to find itself but working hard to do it.

      Cons

      Client selection is unfocused. They do not have a clear vision of where they fit in the market. Engineering and Tech focus is clear but miss or undervalue the other parts of the Consulting practice. Capture/Service arms are far to interconnected. Due to aquisitions there are many leaders in positions beyond their skills. Also many of the onsite leaders on projects are out of their depth and it makes the day to day highly ineffective. High Standards are often not needed because good enough is good enough.
