I worked at Avascent full-timePros
Avascent hires people who are self-motivated, engaging and sharp. The responsibility entry-level analysts are given is unparalleled in the industry, and the opportunity for career progression for high performers is outstanding. Avascent teaches its employees to think critically and fully about problems facing their clients, and then allows more junior members of the team to present their findings.
Beyond Avascent, the staff that decides to leave go on to impress top business schools and other graduate programs or employers. Additionally, the company fosters strong relationships between employees that last beyond their time at Avascent.Cons
The hours can be long, though careful planning and communication can curb how painful and/or unexpected they will be. The projects focus primarily on defense issues, so understanding that will be the bulk of the work before starting is key.
Additionally, Avascent has grown rapidly, sometimes at the expense of a clear long-term vision. The growing pains have included some fits and starts with training and hiring cycles. As it settles into its mid-sized status, it will develop ways to bridge its current gaps.Advice to ManagementAdvice
