    I worked at Alvarez & Marsal as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I was an intern this past summer at A&M. Great firm, meaningful work, and a star line on the resume.

    Cons

    I had a great experience, but I don't know about interns in other groups. The work-load and experience may vary.

    I have been working at Alvarez & Marsal full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Very flexible, informal and entrepreneurial work environment. Compensation is better than any comparable firm. The firm has really been growing in the last few years, and out-dated back office tools are being upgraded significantly.

    Cons

    Workload can be very slow at times. There are occasional internal squabbling over which group is going to be allocated a project.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing. The firm could use additional directors and senior directors to provide a better allocation of work.

    Pros

    With growth of the firm being more recent, it is a pretty entrepreneurial place to work. People are very bright and seem to work well together. A&M is flexible to personal situations and people feel like the firm has their back. Firm really seems to be diversifying their services, which can lead to new experiences.

    Cons

    Not much back office support (can be a good thing!). Other typical consulting firm pressures/annoyances, but that is what you sign up for in this industry. Really, I am proud to work at A&M.
