Entry-level in Strategy

2.2 of 5 stars

2014 | VERIFIED EMPLOYEE

Uppers

You are consistently pushed to learn and do more if you are a top performer. Work is relatively interesting

Downers

Terrible culture, in terms of tolerating nasty / difficult employees and management not caring about employee burnout. Management / administration view us as resources as opposed to people. Limited control over allocations. Bad work life balance.

Comments

If you want to learn a lot and develop extraordinary analytical skills AND don't mind bad hours / difficult people, this could work for you. If not, look elsewhere

Uppers

The money

Downers

The culture, the hours, the unpredictability of the hours, the culture, the partner disengagement, the culture, the way consultants are disrespected, the culture

Comments

Culture is awful and the place is a sweat shop. You'll learn a lot, but you won't be happy.

Chicago, IL | 2012 | VERIFIED EMPLOYEE

Uppers

the projects are pure strategy projects. very less operational and no implementation work; the level of responsibility given to fresh MBAs is exceptional. They prepare you to take on a managerial role in any other Consulting company

Downers

The firm's culture is not acceptible. The attrition rate is very high. It is like a concentration camp! The firm gives 3 month performance windows and treats employees as if they will be terminated if they dont perform above expectation in every 3 month cycle. This is totally unaccepyable to MBAs recruited from Top Tier schools

Comments

Please think of the firm culture before choosing to work here. The work will be great but very few people have stayed on here. Most of the fresh MBA graduates from last 3 years of recruitment have left the firm.

Midlevel in Pharmaceuticals and Health Care

Boston, MA | 2011 | VERIFIED EMPLOYEE

Uppers

The people and the type of projects

Downers

The hours and poor management from senior levels (both within cases and in selling cases)

It does not take care of its employees. The VPs are cheap regarding technology, small perks, or other things that would go a long way to productivity or happy employees, even with the hours.

Chicago, IL | 2011 | VERIFIED EMPLOYEE

Uppers

Early responsibility. Out of business school people join at 1 level higher than the other firms as the case leader / project lead. The work that people do out of business school at other firms is done by associates (people who report to us).

Downers

Work life balance. Worse retention policy. No control on personal committments.
