This is pretty true. I have somewhat relevant experience with some of the Federal guidelines I have to deal with but for the most part the money's good considering our only real asset is our potential.

Glassdoor.com would probably be a better resource.

.and they will work you 70+ hours a week and sometimes make you travel. But if you can get 3 years under your belt it will help you. BUT, remember, working for these big firms in IT doesn't carry as much weight as working for them as an accountant.

Joining a big box IT consulting firm is more about the outs... people either try to lateral over to Strategy divisions with the same firm,  apply to MBA, or join a startup in a CTO / technology position.
