    Had so much promise

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
    Chicago, IL

    ProsExtremely smart consulting group, people genuinely work as a team, very collaborative environment

    ConsLeadership had difficulty seeing a long-term strategic vision and the company has been taken over. Much top talent in some markets is leaving

    Advice to Senior ManagementWhat you had was very talented and a great brand, you sold that and now the talent is leaving and the brand is gone.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Talented, smart people

    Senior Associate SA1 (Current Employee)
    New York, NY

    ProsInteresting clients and projects. Smart project team members. Challenging in a good way. Is a great way to set up long term career in terms of compensation and interesting job opportunities.

    ConsWork / life balance is very challenging. As much as seniors want to put programs in place to better this, it remains challenging. The projects are demanding and require more than standard industry hours.

    Advice to Senior ManagementActively listen to feedback from juniors

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Great foundation for a good career

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsFantastic, trial by fire training to think critically. Excellent clients and some truly wonderful and very smart people who are great mentors

    ConsSome politics (true of any consulting firm) and some people who take things a little too seriously/think too highly of themselvse

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Summer Associate

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsGreat people, professional development focus, high-impact projects, respect for your personal time on weekends (generally), and lots of opportunities to contribute to the company culture.

    ConsNot sure what the culture will look like post-merger with PwC. Compensation is competitive but not quite as aggressive as some of the peers Booz claims to have in the consulting marketplace.

    Overall good but....

    Transaction Processing (Current Employee)
    Parsippany, NJ

    ProsLaid back. Everyone works well together. Upper management seems to be stressed all the time. Non-client facing staff seems to be happier.

    ConsI am a little impatient but I feel as if my talents are not being put to good use. I have an accounting degree and they have me processing basic work. I have spoken but it seems like my enthusiasm is worth nothing.

    Advice to Senior ManagementAsk employees what they want to do. Ask them how they would like to advance.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ConsLong hours, lots of travel, repetitive work

    Advice to Senior ManagementContinue to engage junior staff

    Very talented teams of young professionals and seasoned leaders. PwC made good buy!

    Senior Consultant (Former Employee)
    Reston, VA

    ProsExcellent client development and service delivery capabilities.

    ConsWhen I was there, senior management was making unfortunate decisions to reduce staff in the wake of federal sequestration legislation.

    Advice to Senior ManagementNone.
