Long hours

Comments

While we work long hours, the people I work with every day are great. I am constantly learning while at work, and have had the opportunity to work in several different practice areas. I have never felt like Cornerstone takes the time we put in for granted -- I have always felt like my work is appreciated and used in all of the projects I've worked on.

Solving interesting and challenging problems for high stakes litigation.

Variance in Hours

Comments

Economic consulting is not management or strategy consulting, the two are not interchangeable or really that comparable, so don't mix them up. I can't stress enough that things are really, really, different. Even though CR and BCG are really great places to work and can get you great places, the work you will be doing is really different.

The culture and people at Cornerstone Research make it a fantastic place to work

Intelligent colleagues, types of problems, and compensation.

Downers

Work-life balance. Individuals reach senior positions based on their individual work, ability to source revenue, and managerial capacity. As such, a lot of people find themselves in managerial roles without the best talent for it.

Young professionals provided with responsibilities, opportunities to thrive.

Volatility of hours and industry

Comments

What matters more than anything else in considering this job is an interest and appetite for new experiences, knowledge, and opportunities. you can learn the financial, statistic, and other techniques we use fairly quickly if you have the desire to do so. That desire and mentality is essential.
