    I have been working at Analysis Group full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Smart colleagues; collaborative environment; challenging projects

    Cons

    The review system may work when the company was small. But given the bigger size it is getting, the issues in the review process started to show, eg, profound favouritism in review process; one negative feedback even when it is not consistent with all other positive feedbacks can ruin your review; the decision process for compensation is unclear; unfair compensation scenarios were observed (better/similar performance got lower bonus). The high-level people said the company appreciates everyone's hard work during the pandemic. But the appreciation was not necessarily reflected in the compensation. Some people got lower bonus than the past years. The company only provided few hundred dollars financial help, and cancelled meal expenses for working long hours arguing that working from home allow people to cook at home and no need to order takeout/delivery. This rationale may make sense if you have a wife, husband, or cook cooking for you. But most of the analysts/associates still need to cook for themselves after working over 10 hours a day and cooking usually takes more time than ordering food.

    I have been working at Analysis Group for less than a year

    Pros

    Allows (and requires) you to use skills beyond economics - you need to be able to write, think critically, learn new subjects quickly, pay close attention to detail, work in teams, manage others, take and give criticism effectively.

    Cons

    Long hours sometimes. The informal work allocation system can be disorienting and lead to big swings in work load.
