    ASG -- Policy Oriented Consulting Shop

    Summer Associate (Former Employee) Washington, DC

    ProsThe opportunities here to engage am incredible network are great. Senior managers are open to meeting and chatting with all employees, including interns. The leadership of the company is inspiring, very intelligent, and experienced. Client service is demanding and challenging.

    ConsThe company is growing rapidly. This has caused some growing pains, such as unclear reporting structures, limited office space, and evolving team structures. That said, the growth the company is experiences speaks a lot about its client service and potential.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Strategic Consulting Powerhouse

    Intern (Current Employee) Washington, DC

    ProsMore business oriented than policy oriented. Exposure to different issues around the world from different clients. Open to let you work on different functions within the company

    ConsHave to do phone duties and compile daily notes for the company. Phone duty is definitely disruptive to whatever project you are working on. Daily notes can be a learning experience.

    Advice to Senior ManagementNeeds to entrust Interns with greater responsibilities and better pays

    Niche consultancy with a large Rolodex, some egos, but a lot of room to grow

    Intern (Former Employee) Washington, DC

    ProsNearly all of the people who you work with daily are quality and make ASG a good work place. Plus the impressive Rolodex of the senior members is not only interesting but can lead to stellar connections. Substantively the work is usually dynamic; it's not quite management consulting, not lobbying, and not think-tank. Nevertheless, exciting projects usually available with both regional and industry concentrations. Lastly there is a good work-life balance. The hours are usually not grueling but impeccable work is expected to be produced on short timetables. Overall I felt like a valued member of a team and genuinely had friends across the office. I truly have more good things to say than poor.

    ConsThe internal management of the company is an anathema and this problem stems from a merger over four years ago. There are some egos at the top of the company that don't always get along and are not willing to invest profits back into the company. ASG is annoyingly spread across two locations blocks away in DC and equipped with dismal and pathetically outdated IT. The split locations make for a sometimes cold 'dual-office' culture. The lack of structure and advancement potential is disheartening.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTo their credit they are changing the company for the better and restructuring the internal mechanics.

     Nevertheless, egos should be shrunk at the top and there should be a willingness to move forward for the benefit of the entire company. It is fundamental that the company develop a better internal structure for advancement, HR, and operations. Invest in employees, listen to their concerns, and reap the benefits. Poor IT systems stand as a particularly sad testament to non-investment.

    There is so much potential for ASG to outlive its current employees and partners and continue to contribute to international business well into the future. The partners need to recognize and work to firmly establish their legacy by investing in the internal management and people of the company. I unabashedly hope that they do because it was a good place to work that produced quality results.

    ASG

    Director (Former Employee)

    ProsUnparalleled access to the most influential minds working the nexus between commerce and policy. Wide connections within government and C-suite of the largest companies in the world.

    ConsLacking effective organizational management and clear policies for internal growth. Formal training opportunities few and relatively unstructured work culture may not be a good fit for some.

    Advice to Senior ManagementFocus on ensuring recent merger goes well and focus on institutionalizing standard training and client service standards/models. Continue to leverage unmatched reputation.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
