    Advice to Management

    continue to do more non FS

    I worked at Oliver Wyman full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Breadth of clients in Financial Services

    Cons

    No strategy projects, more risk (Big 4 equivalent) projects People are extremely diplomatic They talk of flat structure but follow rigid hierarchy Junior teammates are not valued at all Almost 0 ownership and responsibility to consultants

    Advice to Management

    Transparency should be there When you stick to a particular hierarchy, you must clearly communicate that instead of propagating false information about the culture of the company. Proper Communication is a major challenge in the firm

    I have been working at Oliver Wyman full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    1. Provides opportunities for pretty fast growth 2. Good salary comparable to MBB in the market. 3. Good travel opportunities and allows one to enjoy a consulting lifestyle to the fullest.

    Cons

    Does not value MBAs. Usually consultants leave the firm to do MBA outside.

    Advice to Management

    Should try to improve the firm culture and focus with more rigorous hiring criteria (across all levels). Also, quality of the work done by firm in projects must be reviewed and the firm should stop taking assignments that doesnt add value to its brand.
