      Pros

      The compensation package is virtually unmatched by industry peers. Base Salary only paints a partial picture as annual and performance bonuses also contribute to your compensation. Analysts also regularly receive free meals, travel subsidies, health and wellness stipends. Of course, the real value in this job is the experience. CR places interested Analysts into top 5 graduate programs (PhDs, MBAs, JDs) more often than not. There are also opportunities for internal promotions as well. Analysts also get real opportunities develop their quantitative and analytical skills; you spend your time coding rather than making PowerPoints (sorry Management Consultants).

      Cons

      Work hours can be long and unpredictable, but this is not unique in the consulting world.

      Consultants work on multiple projects at the same time and the pace of client work can be unpredictable, so hours can be tough to manage at times.
