    Former Employee - Senior Analyst in Boston, MA

    I worked at Analysis Group full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Employees are smart, interesting people that I enjoyed having as colleagues. Management is great and treats employees very well. Training for new employees is very good and I learned a lot from working there.

    Cons

    While the day to day work was very enjoyable, there was not a huge positive societal impact. Also, hours could sometimes be high, but I found them to be overall reasonable.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you're doing.

    Pros

    - Friendly, helpful co-workers
    - Formal mentoring programs
    - Great training opportunities for analysts; new associates can also attend
    - Help with b-school/grad school applications for analysts

    - Generally competitive compensation and company perks

    Cons

    - Very limited work-life balance, which isn't a bad thing in itself if you like what you're doing
    - If you're staffed on monotonous, tedious cases, work can be dissatisfying
    - Some technical skills are transferable, but you won't acquire much business/strategy skills
    - Some associates and managers have no idea how to manage teams/work streams

    Great place to work with very intelligent economists/statisticians

    Former Employee - Analyst  in  Boston, MA
    Former Employee - Analyst in Boston, MA

    I worked at Analysis Group full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Very smart people, experts in economics, kind atmosphere, intellectually stimulating work, great place to learn statistical modeling and programming, high profile clients, lots of work and room for expansion

    Cons

    They say that there is a lot of freedom to try projects in different industry areas, but in reality that is quite difficult to do. Unlike the bigger consulting firms, there isn't a strong people operations function/team that coordinates project choice and flow among analysts and associates to ensure that people enjoy their work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest more in the culture of the firm and in people operations. Conduct happiness surveys to gauge how employees feel.

    I have been working at Analysis Group full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    -Competitive pay and great culture among Analysts.
    -Management truly cares about lower-level people.
    -Helpful, institutionalized mechanisms to aid analysts in their applications to graduate school. Also, great exit options.

    Cons

    -Unpredictable work schedule, late nights during weeks reports were due but overall a fairly balanced work life.
    -Work isn't for everyone, if you are not interested in the material it can be monotonous and dreary. However for people interested in business and/or law, this job is intriguing and useful for many future applications

    Pros

    very supportive environment, challenging work, very smart people

    Cons

    long hours around filing deadlines, commitment to accuracy can be tedious

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management does a great job of supporting its staff. I think staff could benefit from immediate feedback instead of only at review time. I would also like to see management be more open about expectations about hours and work life balance.

    Great Place

    Former Employee - Analyst  in  Denver, CO
    Former Employee - Analyst in Denver, CO

    I worked at Analysis Group as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    Office is young, collaborative, excited to work together, form friendships outside of the office ... every Friday you will stop what you are doing by 4 and meet in the kitchen to drink beer with all of your co-workers ... and all of the superiors (including the MP) are very open and approachable

    Cons

    AG is not a household name which makes it sound less impressive than it actually is. And during a 'bad' season you will work weekends

    I have been working at Analysis Group full-time

    Pros

    Great for kids right out of college who may be thinking of business school, grad school support program is peerless. People are all very smart, work is good on interesting cases. Good opportunity to build quantitative technical experience.

    Cons

    Bad cases can be very boring or stressful. During busy times, hours are highly variable; an average week is usually not very long, but the long weeks can be extremely tiring, and can happen at any time. There is little chance of advancement from Analyst positions to higher roles.
