3.4 of 5 stars

Experienced in Energy & Utilities
Cambridge, MA | 2014 | VERIFIED EMPLOYEE


Uppers

People/colleagues, intellectually challenging, flexibility to manage work/life balance and professional development if you push for it


Downers

Managing work/life balance professional development can be very challenging


Comments

The work and work environment can be extremely rewarding, and entry-level consultants (research analysts) are very well-placed in graduate schools after working at Brattle for a few years. However, expectations are very high for quality of work. If you don't plan on being fully engaged, committed, and client-focused, then don't apply.

Midlevel in Energy & Utilities
Cambridge, MA | 2014 | VERIFIED EMPLOYEE


Uppers

Opportunity to learn a great deal about several industries, and work with brilliant people.


Downers

Work/life balance is not stellar.


Comments

This is an excellent place to spend a few years, before graduate school. I know several people who were able to crystallize their focus during their time at the Brattle Group (both deciding to continue in the industry, as well as getting out).

2012 | VERIFIED EMPLOYEE


Uppers

Good colleagues, intgeresting work and flexibility.


Downers

Client demands often make life difficult, litigation-related work involves high stakes and high anxiety.


Comments

The people are the key. It isn't the offices, the website, the marketing plan or the international reach that will make the job fulfilling, but your colleagues. Check us out.

2012 | VERIFIED EMPLOYEE


Uppers

Friendly coworkers, average hours/week are reasonable(ish), well-paid.


Downers

Unpredictability of hours (see previous) and lack of feedback/clarity of expectations.


Comments

Coworkers are very kind and friendly, but not very interesting. Sports and movies are a favorite topic of conversation, and going out drinking is one of the most common forms of entertainment (both for coworker bonding and on one's own). Everyone is easy to work with.
