    I worked at PMA Consultants full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    You get placed on projects that allow you to learn. Depending on your team, you get some resources and technical training (only on tools etc) to help you perform your work. The magnitude of some of the projects are pretty impressive.

    Cons

    Culture is terrible. My office was pretty toxic. Employees were under trained, lack the right level of consulting training, no team work and collaboration, more back stabbing and talking about each other behind one's back. The director was not rained enough on managing people and literally abused the people reporting to them. Its a small company that acts like a consulting firm. Meaning if you end up with a... terrible team (which there are a lot if them) you are stuck with it since the company is not large enough to have multiple teams. The performance and promotion structured are way too flawed. They pretend they have metrics but those metrics are only what the director decides you are and nothing tangible. I moved to a much better and more reputable company and I cannot be happier. Work load is more for me now, but it makes much more sense since its more smart work and not just working to show that I am working.

    Advice to Management

    Get more training on the upper management to know how to lead teams better, and create a better culture.

    Pros

    Managers are mentors and there is strong leadership which creates a positive corporate culture. They treat their employees like family and have dozens of employees who have been with the company over 10 years. They treat employees like grown-ups. They share information with employees, listen to their ideas (or better yet, actively seek out and act upon their ideas) and assume they are responsible enough to manage... their own time. They understand that people have lives outside of work, and that these lives might sometimes impinge on (or even take over) their time and attention. They realize that allowing for some work-life give and take means not only that they won’t waste time and money on unnecessary turnover, but that they’ll build loyalty and commitment.

    Cons

    There is no real way for all of us from different offices to meet once a year.

    Advice to Management

    If you’re looking for information on how to make your organization a better place to work, another Exit Interview style survey might help you keep current employees happy and engaged.

    Pros

    Great company to work for! As a consulting company, you obviously don't work at the base office, but you still have a sense of community from your PMA peers. Regular team building events, great pay, career advancement opportunities, and always someone from management you can reach out to when you need guidance.

    Cons

    I haven't experienced any issues yet.
