    Pros

    Variety of casework; kind people; Opportunities for non-billable work (mentoring, recruiting, leading training). New hires are given a lot of responsibility right off the bat, and there is a community of trust

    Cons

    The hours can be somewhat unpredictable and long; Can get "stuck" in a specific practice area; Depending on the cases you work on, the work can get repetitive; No opportunity for advancement beyond Senior Analyst without graduate degree

    Advice to Management

    Continue to solicit feedback from analysts about how to improve/maintain the culture; consider providing alternate routes for advancement that do not require graduate degree

    Pros

    Great people, lots of opportunities for training, flexibility, variety of work, opportunities to become experts in different skill sets if interested, helpful feedback system, sense of ownership of projects

    Cons

    unpredictable hours at times, multiple deadlines can occur at the same time, need to be really proactive and communicative about how much project work to take on and how to balance changing workloads

    Advice to Management

    Thanks for being supportive of junior level staff - we appreciate it! I think some training during the transition to become client facing would be helpful for some.

    Pros

    Smart coworkers Lots of Analysts/Senior Analysts with similar backgrounds and interests Great location Partners focused on maintaining work/life balance Serious training and skill-development during first two years Good environment for economics/math majors who enjoy problem-solving

    Cons

    Some growing pains as the firm continues to expand Economic consulting is not as well-known as management/strategy consulting Tough to explain what you do to your parents

    Advice to Management

    Think the partners actively try to keep their pulse on the firm and make sure employees are happy

    Pros

    AG has great office culture. It is a very team oriented place. They provide on the job training as well as seminars for interns. There were many events held to incorporate interns into office life. The work was challenging, although some interns were very busy, while others did not always have work. This was dependent upon where your case was in its life cycle.

    Cons

    AG could be more diverse. The company felt very WASP-y at times.

    Advice to Management

    Please try to have recruiters hire a more diverse incoming analyst class. Other than that, keep up the good work!

    Pros

    Fantastic company culture: There's a large emphasis on employee trust, so you never feel like you're competing with anyone. Regularly analyst and company events truly make the company one of the best places to work. Case projects also tend to be very interesting and challenging on a higher level.

    Cons

    Often times, the work done by interns and analysts tend to be fairly routine and non-interesting (editing footnotes, running the routine analyses, manually entering or preparing data). This, however, is a problem across the Economic consulting industry. I will say that Analysis Group tries actively to combat this by providing its interns and analysts with more responsibility when possible.

    Pros

    Analysis Group is a great place to work. The compensation and benefits are top notch, and the principals are generally very friendly to deal with. In general, there is a great culture here. Also, there are a lot of smart people who work here - which is certainly a plus.

    Cons

    I am not sure about the trajectory for individual growth in the organization.

    Pros

    AG is very supportive of placing you into the type of cases you are interested in. You can learn a lot on the job with amazing colleagues and formal training. You learn SAS, R, Excel, which are useful in the job market. Great support system for post-AG life: the company actually encourages you and gives you advice and support group, whether you are applying to PhD, MBA, or try something different! Pay was very good. Snacks and drinks. Wish there were catered lunch every day though.

    Cons

    The promotion system is a little confusing. I think as the company gets bigger now, it may be hard to have direct contact with the partners, depending on cases. And if they partners don't know you well, even if you are doing awesome job, you may not get promoted when you deserve to be. Work-life balance can be hard depending on case.

    Advice to Management

    I would recommend the partners to revise the peer review and promotion system.

    Pros

    Employees are smart, interesting people that I enjoyed having as colleagues. Management is great and treats employees very well. Training for new employees is very good and I learned a lot from working there.

    Cons

    While the day to day work was very enjoyable, there was not a huge positive societal impact. Also, hours could sometimes be high, but I found them to be overall reasonable.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing.
