Good place to learn strategy consulting methodologies but management issues

3.0 of 5 stars

September 2017 | FORMER EMPLOYEE

Uppers

- Clients (Fortune 500 clients)
- Some very interesting projects
- True strategy consulting firm (spin-off of BCG) with a consulting engineering and problem solving culture
- Not "mainstream" or stereotyped consultant behaviors as at bigger consulting firms or big 4
- Mentorship of young consultants

Downers

- Only a few clients in each office; it could be experienced as very repetitive if you don't move to other offices
- A bit old-fashioned; grey-hair management; limited renewal
- Aggressive top management with a dominant wolf and conflictual behavior
- Family business
- Best talent drain

Comments

Do your homeworks on what is the firm today (google search is not enough, you should connect with some alumni)
Be prepared to case studies

San Francisco, CA | 2010 | VERIFIED EMPLOYEE

Downers

A large amount of competitive intelligence work that at times pushes the boundaries of professional ethics

Comments

I have learned a lot and greatly improved my quant skills, but it's not a long-term career unless you prefer not to see your friends and family except on the weekends that you're not working.
