      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Extensive training provided to all employees on both soft skills/management and technical skills/data analysis. Smart people and great culture. Free snacks in office. Varied cases allow you to get experience across many industries.

      Cons

      Long and unpredictable hours, because working for corporate lawyers. Can get pigeon-holed into one particular role if not careful. Tedious work (e.g., checking footnotes) at times. Expectation to work 50 hours (on average) in a week.

      Good comp, smart people, volatile hours and stress levels

      Feb 20, 2019 - Research Associate in New York, NY
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      A lot of hard-working and smart people. Good compensation. Interesting cases are often on the front page of the Wall Street Journal. Business growth seems very strong.

      Cons

      It's fundamentally a client services business, so there is a lot of volatility in hours and stress levels. This is true both across individuals and for individuals over time. Graduate school sponsorships are decades behind top strategy consulting firms.
