    Good learning opportunity but awful culture

    Associate (Current Employee) New York, NY

    ProsChallenging work, good set of colleagues at times and travel perks

    ConsOld Boys Club culture
    Business is very unstable
    Little regard for people and their needs - this is not a place to have a long term career
    Short sighted and incredibly arrogant leadership
    Did I say terrible culture?

    Advice to Senior ManagementPut your ego aside and try to be a decent firm. Treat your employees like human beings and stop pretending you're anywhere as close to MBB as you think

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Claim a fair environment with merit based rewards, in reality immoral and highly political

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) New York, NY

    ProsGreat people at the firm, some of the best I have worked with. True leaders can be found at Booz & Company, though unfortunately, very few at the management level. Booz is also a great place to learn and grow.

    ConsDo not promote based on merit, despite what is advertised. Also, have denied full-time employment to interns based on visa issues which interns were not notified of before agreeing to summer internships.

    Advice to Senior ManagementPlease start to reward your employees based on merit (both for promotions and bonuses). They deserve it. Additionally, do not offer internships unless interns can be offered full-time positions, or notify interns of any restrictions beforehand.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
