Still a great company with uncertainty of the future
December 2014 | Current Employee


Uppers

The projects are high-profile, exciting and drive real change in major companies i n the region. Most of the employees are brilliant and there's a genuine concern for the development of staff.


Downers

The acquisition by PWC continues to bring uncertainty into our future. There's a feeling of brand dilution and a fear of exodus should PWC influence our operating model too much


Comments

Successful consultants really do have a passion for the job - the variety of work we do, working through the ambiguity of the clients' issues, the problem solving process, the big changes we can influence. All this offsets the late nights and stress of the job. To some extent, this passion can come out during the interviews - if you're considering applying, try to highlight your genuine interest in solving management issues rather than just proving you can do a case.

Run, do not walk away from this company.
December 2014 | Former Employee


Uppers

Free food: bread, fruit, bagels, donuts, muffins. Pool table. New offices.


Downers

Your best will not be good enough. Under the guise of "professionalism", they will

criticize your gestures and casual comments. Then when you've had enough and post your

resume on a job site, they're all righteous indignation. Someone is always watching you

and giving negative feedback to your boss and you'll never know who. They will use you

up, lay you off and then with a great deal of satisfaction, not give you a reference.


Comments

Be very willing to go the extra mile. Do not make any waves, under any circumstances. Watch your back, someone will be sticking a knife in it.

Practical solutions. client centric and respect for the individual

Did not have enough scale (which has changed with recent merger with PwC)

With the recent merger with PwC there are even more opportunities to learn and grow across a wide set of sectors and clients; also ability to take projects from strategy creation to execution - great time to be at Strategy & (formerly Booz & Co)

Partner in Strategy
San Francisco, CA | 2014 | VERIFIED EMPLOYEE


Uppers

Most flexible of the blue chip strategy firms; genuine respect for people


Downers

Scale relative to McK and BCG---Booz lost scale irrecoverably with the split between Booz & Co. and Booz Allen Hamilton


Comments

Consulting is not an easy industry

Strategy services is harder

Top tier strategy services is harder still

Consider Booz only of if you really like to be challenged; if you want to end every day feeling as though you were pushed and came out better for it.

Comments

Great firm, great clients - the firm is redefining what a great consultancy should look like but in the short-run prestige could take a hit due to the new branding.
