Comments

Cornerstone is an excellent career choice for an academically-inclined candidate. My coworkers are exceptionally intelligent and go on to/have graduated from top PhD and MBA programs, or go on to top data analytics roles or JD programs. It is a challenging, rewarding environment at a firm that is unique within its field.

Constantly learning, not constantly working.

Occasional tedious work.

I have received numerous offers over the years to move to competitors but never seriously considered any of them given my happiness at Cornerstone.

It's really one of the best places to work out of college. You get to develop your skills in working in a team and with large datasets.

Comments

Economic consulting is a bit of a niche industry, but the skills that you'd learn at Cornerstone go far beyond that industry. Cornerstone exposes analysts to a wide variety of industries and topics, which is both interesting and informative. Additionally, the excel, SAS, and other coding skills are very useful in other positions. Further, the expert and client interaction helps you gain experience working with clients in different fields, and the management skills gained from managing small teams of less experienced analysts to whole case teams is also extremely valuable.
