White Plains, NY | 2018 | VERIFIED EMPLOYEE

Uppers

Pretty good base pay, and I got a very good signing bonus. Somewhat flat structure: managers treat lower level employees as peers. Although hours are sometimes long, the good managers understand that we all have lives outside of work and try to accommodate for that. Can work remotely sometimes. Excellent work experience if you plan on pursuing a career in a related field. Semi-casual dress. Employees are encourage to use all vacation days.

Downers

Long hours around deadlines, sometimes unpredictable. I've been here less than a yeah so I haven't received a performance bonus yet, but I've heard that they are sub-par. I've also heard that the culture at certain offices is overly competitive and bad for new hires.

Advice to Candidates

If you want to pursue a career in consulting or law, NERA is one of the better places you can start. New hires are given a lot of responsibility if they want it, and there are good opportunities to work with the directors/senior staff. The hours can be long but if you are OK putting in one or two long weeks every couple of months than you'll be fine.

Entry-level | New York, NY | 2018 | VERIFIED EMPLOYEE

Getting a lot of experience working with economics (theory and data).

Advice to Candidates

Culture can be very different between practice groups and offices. Ask your interviewer what it’s like at their office/group.
