    Great opportunities for effecting change

    Good could have been better

    Senior Associate (Former Employee) San Francisco, CA

    ProsSmart but grounded people
    Plenty of camaraderie

    ConsMost of work is routine drudgery. Not much "Strategy" done here. 80-90% of work is sourcing and its boiler plate work
    Many managers equate work with the number of Powerpoint slides generated per day. A 16-20 slide deck per week is routine even though client flips thru them in 15 seconds and is done

    Advice to Senior ManagementExtricate slowly from easy money - sourcing. Pretty soon the world (MBAs, undergrads) will wise up and stop believing your fancy on campus presentations

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Powerhouse consulting firm but with major work-life balance issues

    Business Analyst (Current Employee) San Francisco, CA

    Pros-White shoe firm
    -Exposure to senior executives in a range of industries
    -Steep learning curve

    Cons- Appalling work-life balance when on projects
    - Difficult to get staffed exclusively in the industry one is most interested in. Typically one is assigned
      without much regard to one's preferences
    - Staffing system is inefficient. Currently the firm is suffering from a dearth of projects and far too many
      consultants are on the proverbial beach

    Advice to Senior Management- Be more proactive about monitoring work - life balance. Follow the BCG model and keep track of the
       hours that consultants put into work.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
