Entry-level in Management | Chicago, IL | 2017 | VERIFIED EMPLOYEE

Quality of Work, Quality of Colleagues, Work /Life Balance, and Firm Culture

Downers

Can feel small at times

Comments

Lots of firms claim to do "strategy work" very few actually do. Marakon is one of the few firms that almost exclusively focus on strategy and do so at a very high level. The cultures of boutique firms and large organizations are very different. If you are interested in the cultural benefits of a boutique firm while still doing strategy work with C-Suites of blue chip companies there may be no better place than Marakon.

leadership transparency

Comments

Great firm to start your career out of undergrad in terms of professional and consulting development -- amazing junior staff to learn from, great exposure to senior leadership (who spend time on mentorship) and clients in my experience. Not a lot of travel in my experience -- have worked primarily out of our NY office.

Intellectually rigoruous strategy work with fun and smart colleagues

Intellectual honesty, smart colleagues, small-firm culture

Downers

Volatility in performance, harder to make significant investments

Comments

If you are early in your career, Marakon is unbeatable as a place to learn the basics of strategy consulting.

Small enough to handle everything & everyone on a case-by-case basis: if you're confident you're a high-flier, come here.

its small so client diversity is more limited then at a bigger firm

Comments

The best fit are candidates that are seeking a boutique firm experience. Someone who would thrive in a smaller firm with a more entrepreneurial spirit.

Stretch experience, training, and general knowledge gained.

Downers

Cyclicality of projects, uneven partner group.

Comments

Overall experience depends a lot on the partner/manager you're working for as well as the project you're on in general, which is similar to any consulting firm but perhaps more apparent at a boutique.
