    Interesting Work and Good People

    Senior Analyst (Former Employee)
    Boston, MA

    ProsInteresting work, great people, fun culture, no travel, competitive compensation, opportunities to take significant responsibility, company is very supportive of it's employees who want to attend graduate programs including MBAs, JDs, PhDs, and MPPs, etc., extremely solid job security (no layoffs even during the financial crisis), being private means company is focused on its employees instead of shareholders

    ConsBeing a small-to-medium size firm should provide benefits in the form of less bureaucracy than larger firms, but Cornerstone has made some attempts to implement unneccessary firmwide software and other trappings of larger firms which have often been counterproductive (e.g., it is widely acknowledged that the firm's recruiting software system has made the recruiting process much more complicated and unreliable than it used to be for both employees and job applicants).

    Advice to Senior ManagementThe firm should reconsider the effectiveness of its 5-years-and-out policy and restrictions against promotion to the Associate post-MBA position for Analysts.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Solid reputation, but difficult to advance to post-MBA position

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
    Boston, MA

    ProsGood reputation for an econ consulting firm
    Academic feel within-office; lots of PhD's on top
    Good benefits, OK salary
    Analyst class generally very intelligent

    ConsMiddle-management heavy
    Culture varies widely by office
    Difficult to progress through company; must leave to get MBA
    Lower-pay / bonus structure than generalist firms

    Advice to Senior ManagementReevaluate need for so many middle-level management
    Aggressively promote top-performers to associate-level, rather than creating a bottleneck which causes top talent to churn
