Low administrative overhead, incredibly smart coworkers, wide range of client work, challenging projects, decent compensation.

Downers

As an employee, I don't see downsides.

Comments

This is a small firm and it isn't possible to blend into the woodwork. There is regular interaction with senior leadership and great opportunity to learn and advance.

I Love It Here!

Culture, variety, opportunity

Downers

The firm is primarily known for restructuring, and our performance improvement practice is still not well known.

Comments

Great place to work in teams. If you believe "it's all about you", and you find it difficult to work collaboratively, this will not be a good fit. On the other hand, this is a place that values new points of view, that is not bound by frameworks or the "solution du jour". Smart people dealing with challenging and ambiguous situations and our clients' scariest problems is where we excel.
