Supportive culture, solid compensation, interesting and varied work


Downers

Lack of name recognition, lack of client interaction, no career track


Comments

Because most of the senior consulting staff are PhDs, Cornerstone has a more academic vibe than other consulting firms. The work in niche, and no one at the bar will recognize the name. But Cornerstone is a premier firm in the economic consulting world, and the high-profile cases and generous compensation reflect this. As with any job, you get out what you put in: if you invest in the firm and in your casework, the firm and your managers will invest in you. The exit opportunities at Cornerstone are extremely prestigious. This is a fantastic first job.
