The some times very long hours necessary


Comments

The most important factor about finding a job is whether the person is going to be able to become part of the team (what many people call "good fit"). Most of the time, it's not about ability but about being a good match for the job.

Very interesting work, collegial environment, and opportunities for personal development


Comments

If you like rigorous, data driven quantitative analyses, Bates White is a great place to work. If the word 'data' makes you feel uncomfortable, Bates White is not the place for you.

The types of problems we get -- hard, interesting; the coworkers and clients we get to work on them with -- smart, creative, curious; the flexibility of our work when demands are not high


Downers

Learning to balance work and life


Comments

You should only get into this career if you want to do this work, as it's hard work. The rewards are intellectual and financial, but they demand effort. People who aren't motivated to solve hard problems and learn new skills in the process of doing so won't do well here.

Do your research on what we do, know who we are. We will probe your answers, don't try to fit all of your interviews to the same script.

Comments

Try to look at the following at any company and then compare to Bates White - the respect given to junior staff (e.g., check the office space given to consultants), the opportunities for advancement, the level of participation in nonbillable activities by senior people (e.g., training, volunteer work, staff development), client-sharing, and tenure of the junior staff. I thinlk our partners have found a terrific mix of running a profitable business while sharing rewards.
