universal competence, frequent brilliance, great culture.

Analyst (Current Employee) Boston, MA

ProsCoworkers are all, at least, very smart. Several coworkers border on brilliant. This would be intimidating if the culture were not so casual. That guy down the hall with a Ph.D. from MIT, who taught at Harvard for a bit, he goes by Bill and his door is always open. AG is a great place to learn and grow in an environment where excellence is the norm. This is especially true for analysts. The firm knows you'll be moving on to grad school after a few years. Top b-schools not only regularly accept AG analysts, they actually come and actively recruit on an annual basis. The firm is supportive enough to cater lunches for these presentations and hold work shops for not just the analysts who will be applying to grad schools, but also the senior managers who will be writing their recommendations.

ConsAnalysts are expected to navigate the informal "labor market" largely through their own initiative. This can be stressful and intimidating, though it ultimately gives an unbelievable amount of flexibility in terms of finding work and coworkers that you enjoy. Hours can be tough to predict, and when they get bad, they can stay that way for weeks on end. Expensable meals and cab vouchers ease the burden, but these stretches can be rough. It isn't impossible to self-select away from the type of cases that get crazy though.

Advice to Senior ManagementKeep it informal, continue to encourage camaraderie both in and out of the office.

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