The people are fun and not pretentious and I want to be friends with them; you get a ton of client exposure; small project teams and lots of responsibility

Downers

Nobody has ever heard of it; Minimal back office makes staffing convoluted

Comments

Great place to start your career - tons of responsibility and exposure to high-level executives at clients. The work and clients are not always prestigious but that doesn't matter for someone just starting out. The learning opportunities are incredible and I'm challenged every day. Project teams are small so I never feel like a cog in the wheel. However, this is not the place for someone who isn't able to take charge of their own career. Formal support is minimal and you have a ton of responsibility to chart your own path. It's both good and bad, but overall I would say good.

Awesome people both personally and professionally, great work/life balance, challenging environment for growth

Downers

extremely sales focused when considering promotions

Comments

If you have the drive, commitment, and are a team player, there are no limits of how far you can go. This especially allows for college recruits to gain vast experience and assume leadership roles quickly. These opportunities are more limited at traditional consulting firms.



Experience hires will benefit from working with extremely talented folks, doing engaging work, and a great work/life balance.

The people and culture.

Downers

Need always be entrepreneurial - lack of structure.

Comments

Need to be a very open communicator during recruiting and starting at A&M to understand your goals and opportunities and align them with the needs an opportunities of the firm. Everyone is open and willing to help - if it is a fit it is a fit, so be honest about your own goals and criteria.
