Downers

Due to the type of consulting, sometimes hours can be unpredictable.

Economics consulting is a great field because it uses academic rigor to address interesting problems in litigation. I have had discussions with friends at other economics consulting firms, and I believe that Cornerstone is definitely the best.

Young professionals provided with responsibilities, opportunities to thrive.

Choose your job based on the people you will be working with. Any work can be interesting if your co-workers are passionate about what they do and where they work. Cornerstone Research stood out to me when I was looking for a job, which is why I chose it. I haven't been disappointed.
