Current Consultant - Strategy& New York
March 2015 | Current Employee


Uppers

Perfect blend of prestigious management consulting ethos and an entrepreneurial work culture for employees.
Environment strongly favors initiative and meritocracy with ample opportunity for those looking to advance.
Strong mentorship culture with colleagues and senior staff taking a keen interest in junior staff.development and advancement
A plethora of new opportunities to serve several new Fortune 500 clients as a result of relationships brought in by PwC post merger.


Downers

Integration of firm cultures with PwC will take time and the difference in talent especially at junior levels can impact work dynamic in jointly staffed teams.
The reputation of Booz & Company has unfortunately, and perhaps unfairly taken a bit of a hit despite the successful acquisition of prestigious new clients post merger and overall firm growth.


Comments

Strategy& is a fantastic place for smart, entrepreneurial people looking to learn a lot and get their hands dirty. Not only do junior staff have the opportunity to learn the invaluable consulting soft skills - the Strategy& alignment model allows client staff to build in-depth industry knowledge by working primarily in a specific practice (e.g. Financial Services, Healthcare, Consumer & Retail etc) - which allows for better exit opportunities into industry.
While the merger with PwC and funky new branding may raise a few eyebrows from the outside - the firm has done very well to position itself for success with strong growth, investment in retaining and acquiring new talent (Including partners from rival firms) and building client relationships with a number of legacy PwC clients. The wins have definitely outweighed the losses and at least for now - 'Strategy&' looks like an exciting new step for what was once Booz.

Practical solutions. client centric and respect for the individual


Downers

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


Comments

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)

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.
