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.
