5.0 of 5 stars

December 2014 | CURRENT EMPLOYEE

Uppers

A&M has a strong culture, where analysts/ consultants are given opportunities well above their pay grade and an entrepreneurial spirit still exists.

A&M has an incredible mentoring culture. Every analyst/ consultant has a mentor who is a partner or Sr. Director. They genuinely care about their mentee's careers and lives. I speak with my mentor on a weekly basis to talk about work and just catch up.

Exposure to senior executives (titles starting with C and VP) is common. I've had 7 projects thus far and I was working directly for a CPO, COO or VP on 4/7.

Downers

Pay is below industry standard for entry level positions. Base pay is ~$10K less than most major firms. While there is opportunity for higher bonus than others (up to 40% on base), this rarely happens. Bonuses are in-line or slightly above industry standard.

Comments

Although the vast majority of analysts/ consultants come in off campus, it's not very difficult to come in as an experienced analyst/ consultant.

Although all companies say they value culture and are different, our company really does walk the walk. I can't say enough about the quality of the people and the leadership team and the value that is placed on doing the right thing for our people.

The real question is do you want to control your career or do want other people you don't get to know well to control your career

travel, the clients, my intelligent and passionately curious coworkers, the unique approach to problem solving that we employ, the diamond structure, the fact that we don't use a staff augmentation model, the fact that we can make interim management decisions because we are not affiliated with an accounting practice, the implementation aspects of our client work

Downers

who / when a person gets staffed and / or promoted are often subjective decisions
