    They work hard and cut support staff too quickly, which means the workload is always high.The global nature of the firm of leads to late night/very early morning calls.

    Pros

    Respectful environment and low turnover internally. A place that works collaboratively as a team. I would recommend this company to anyone looking for a safe and longterm career move.

    Cons

    The only con is that as a research analyst you have little to no potential/possibility to become an associate consultant/"partner", therefore limiting the career upward mobility and growth.

    Pros

    - Work is around senior executives of big companies, so big impact.
    - Global collaboration and support makes work interesting.

    Cons

    - conservative and traditional. Internal promotions are limited within consultants or within support staff, virtually no cross-class opportunities.

    Advice to Management

    Obama is a good president, even though he did not have the classical track record.
