Washington, DC | 2014 | VERIFIED EMPLOYEE


Uppers

Strong comraderie feeling in the office, room to become an in-house expert at something.


Downers

Lopsided treatment and evaluation of staff between operations and client services


Comments

The firm tries hard to develop equality in hiring and promoting, but having a good relationship with at least one partner is key to a fulfilling career.

Uppers

The best aspects are the people at the company and the firm's commitment to treating its employees extremely well.


Downers

Occasional 80 hour work weeks and difficulty working across practice areas.


Comments

The bulk of a consultant's every day work is data driven. The job is incredibly left-brain-intensive.

Uppers

Flexibility, intellectual challenge


Downers

Internal dynamics


Comments

This firm is an excellent blend of real-world application and ivory-tower theory. It also still has a lot of entreneurial feel, so those who succeed tend to be go-getters who strike a good balance of advocating their views versus abosrbing the wisdom and experience of their colleagues.
