    The best possible experience for a 20-something years old

    Current Employee - Engagement Manager
    Current Employee - Engagement Manager

    Pros

    Exposure to problems and skills that you would otherwise need to climb the corporate ladder for 10 years for. Even at the business analyst level, you are pushed to interact and lead clients instead of sitting in a room doing analysis and finding data

    Cons

    The apprenticeship model could really be hit or miss. For a new hire who does not already have the right mindset of humbly learning from mentors or just got unlucky, the firm can be a tough place. There are few opportunities to learn the ropes outside the apprenticeship model

    You can choose industry, function and, sometimes, geography to work
    Projects are all different and often interesting
    You interact with top management of top companies - there is what to learn from them
    Smart colleagues
    Steep learnig curve
    Many exit options

    Cons

    Long hours (not much better than in IB: you work even more on weekdays but typically have free weekends)
    Extensive travel
    You are paid not enough for this lifestyle: travel and hours
