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

    Pros

    Great company events; tight-knit and fun among juniors (go on vacation together, hang out outside of work); smart and engaging employees; international atmosphere; compensation is good

    Cons

    Clear favoritism and extremely political in the more senior levels; incredibly misogynistic culture - pressure for women to act a certain way or be labeled uptight/stiff; awkward market positioning often leading to a lack of projects (too good for small projects, but too small for good projects); projects limited to a handful of industries and key clients

    I have been working at goetzpartners full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Amazing culture, incredibly nice people (somewhat hard to find elsewhere in consulting), the Company offers significant occasion to join (very) global projects. Working hours can vary, but overall acceptable.

    Cons

    It is a boutique, with a clear German core. It is easy to get stuck in repetitive streams (private equity practice, transformation/ cost cutting activities).
