A lot of responsibility right off the bat
It's generally a 3-and-out model. Stay for a max of 5 years but you HAVE to get an MBA or PhD to keep working as an associate, unless you are the secret/political/god-knows-what favorite handpick 1% person who gets magically promoted to associate. If you don't want to get an MBA or a PhD, there really isn't much of a point to working here for more than a year. It's tough to lateral anywhere else after, say, two years. This isn't anyone's fault; the industry requires the degrees and that's that.
Advice to Management
Not much, this is a well-run and well-managed place.
