      Pros

      Friendly colleagues, plenty of room to learn with well managed training materials and resources. Work effort and suggestions taken seriously. Seniors are very open and responsive to questions. The work is interesting and varied. There are opportunities to work on high profile cases. Supportive, laid-back, but professional culture.

      Cons

      Hours can sometimes be unpredictable, though this is typical in the industry.

      Pros

      Compass has a great culture (DC and Boston) and flexible management. I feel welcome and appreciated. Management cares about its employees and is accommodating to personal circumstances if need be. We get to work on high-profile cases, senior and junior colleagues are very intelligent and driven. The pay and benefits are good. Amazing place to get your start in the industry.

      Cons

      Work-life balance could be bad around deadlines and some assignments junior staff get to work on are boring (e.g. formatting)- none are unique to the company though.

      Best place I have ever worked at

      Jun 9, 2020 - Senior Economist in London, England
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Very interesting work (Compass gets many of the most high profile cases in EU Competition). Excellent technical level of colleagues (you learn so much from the people you work with, and are constantly challenged). Great work environment (friendly colleagues and real support from management when things are difficult either at work or in your life). Flexible work arrangement (e.g. working from home is very common). Work across offices with colleagues not only around Europe, but also in US and Asia. Pay is higher than with competitors.

      Cons

      Some times hours can be very long, although flexible work arrangements allow for decent work-life balance

      Pros

      Amazing and talented people to work with, at all levels, very good atmoshpere in the office. Exposure to high-profile cases and a high-standard of work that is a key for allowing consultants to improve significantly over time. Great careers opportunity and remuneration.

      Cons

      As for most of the economic consultancies, some cases might lead to long and unpredictable hours.
