Compensation relative to peers

Comments

Great opportunities to work on intellectually engaging, interesting, and relevant projects. You quickly learn a ton about the industry and have the opportunity to work in a bunch of different practice areas, industries, and project types. While it may not be a management consulting firm, it is top tier within the economic consulting domain, and people in the know speak very highly of the firm and its work products. It's compensation packages are not nearly as competitive as many of its peers, but the opportunities and prestige a job at NERA affords you make it well worth it.

Working with very smart people on the most relevent and current economic issues.

Stress as top work is only half of success, business development is the other half.

Probably the best first job out of undergrad. Quantitative analysis and law. For senior positions, very lucrative if you have all the skills.

The learning experience and pay

Downers

Unstable work week. Can be <40 to >60 and without much ability to foresee from week to week.

Comments

A great experience if you want to improve yourself in the field. Pays very well. Work life balance can be thrown out of whack and long hours are often needed, especially when around trials and report due dates.

Intellectually stimulating work with highly intelligent individuals who are not necessarily the best managers.
