    I worked at Analysis Group

    Pros

    -some interesting technical cases
    -most seniors are understanding
    -personal growth investment from others
    -company events
    -lots of nice people
    -training programs have expanded and improved recently

    Cons

    -some nice people are actually fake (which you will find out during your review)
    -some excruciating cases that you can't get off of
    -gossip culture office politics. free market labor results in highly political atmosphere. seniors and HR gossip a lot.
    -hour structure is billable. keeping record of how every minute is spent is awful
    -economic consulting is tedious. good for extremely ( with added emphasis) detail oriented people
    -limited brand-name of company

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    -as company grows, it's changed. talented s. analysts and even some associates and above have left, but company ignores this. company and HR have framed the employee leaving nonchalantly rather than looking in mirror to say "this may be our fault, how can we retain talent." at end of day, consulting firms only asset is the people, there is no technology or product. as talented people start to leave, i wonder if the firm is what is used to be. don't get complacent. wake up call highly recommended.

    Net-net positive but initial placement typically determines what you will be working on during your tenure.

    I worked at Analysis Group full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The people at AG are really smart and at the analyst level, the camaraderie is unparalleled.

    Cons

    Ones success at AG is highly dependent on things such as initial case placement. During interviews, people at AG will tell you about the "internal labor market" and how this "allows you to work on what interests you." While it is true that there is an internal labor market, it is very difficult to switch practice areas.

    Another issue with AG is that the bonuses do not reflect the amount you work. MBS analysts, for example, work long hours and are expected to be on call at all times. On the other hand, some of the healthcare and healthcare litigation people have extremely tame schedules. Despite the huge differences in the amount these analysts work, their bonuses are typically within $3,000-5,000 of each other.
