    Pros

    Great smart people, quick fast paced environment, client interaction from the first day for all levels of staff. Low base but compensates for it with overtime.

    Cons

    No formal learning. No handholding. Some of the folks are micromanagers which is why it is important to pick the directors who you will be working for. No choice in the case that you want to work for. NO WORK LIFE BALANCE.

    Advice to Management

    Encourage younger folks to take on a bigger role, give opportunities, have a formal training learning, mentoring program to help develop people.

    Pros

    Work with bright and driven people, challenged on daily basis, good compensation, AP pays 100% of health insurance premiums, good dental and vision too

    Cons

    Travel can be constant if you're in FAS. Life on the road has its pluses (nice meals, nice hotels, frequent flyer points and miles) but living out of a suitcase gets old.

    Advice to Management

    Try to lessen the travel by making the teams larger

    Pros

    The firm has a great reputation in the industry. The client delivery people are very good. Good place to start your career in restructuring.

    Cons

    There is very little room for advancement beyond the director level and there are a lot of director level employees. Interim management opportunities primarily go to managing directors.
