Among those who know, Monitor Group is top of the class and continues to get stronger. For those who don't need the few benefits or comforts of a larger firm, it's an ideal place to work.

Highly meritocratic, fast advancement and working with incredibly bright people willing to be your coaches and mentors.

Downers

We've been through some rough times over the past few years and are only now emerging from that. It takes time to put all that behind you.

Comments

Monitor is a firm that punches far above its size in the clients it advises and the caliber of its people. This is not a "Plan B" firm, but rather a firm that expects to recruit the best and brightest people who want to come to Monitor because they believe the firm is different and trying to change the rules of the consulting game.

Every person I have met at Monitor is incredibly smart and engaging, but they have a wide range of backgrounds and perspectives. The firm places a lot of emphasis on networks, and if you want something to happen, you are encouraged to ask for help and chart your own course rather than waiting for someone to offer you solutions. Monitor is a true meritocracy where people are promoted as and when they're ready - no one will put you in a box and tell you to wait 2 years before assuming more responsibility, but if you need a little longer to develop at one level, no one is going to throw you out because you didn't fit their defined timeline. The fact that we work from our own offices most of the time has a huge impact on work-life balance and lifestyle sustainability. Most importantly, our work is incredibly interesting - every project involves creating a customized solution based on deep understanding of the client's unique situation, rather than doing something the way it's been done 100 times before.

Downers

By virtue of its entrepreneurial roots and small size, Monitor is not the most structured of places. If you are looking for a firm with a very clearly defined career path and plenty of formal structures, Monitor is not the place for you, since we place a lot of emphasis on the individual as the unit of analysis - you are expected to make the things you want to see, happen.

Comments

Monitor is a place for people who want to be engaged in thinking through challenging, important problems, together with their clients. You should come here if you want to be constantly challenged and engaged. You should come here if you want to work with brilliant people from diverse backgrounds who are intellectually curious as well as business-savvy. You should come here if you entrepreneurial and want the opportunity to shape the future of a firm that is still relatively young and constantly evolving. You should NOT come here if you want to be led through a structured, two-year program delivering pre-packaged content to clients who already know the answers they want.
