Pros

Lots of good experiences and opportunities to grow. Good office culture, good opportunities to work on business development and firm building.

Cons

No real training for technical work, low number of clients leads to analysts working for the same client for years.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Would be nice to get some bonuses once in a while

    Good consulting firm with an uncertain future

    Pros

    Archstone is a great place to get exposure to management consulting, especially since their focus is on generating implementable solutions and often executing those solutions, which I believe is increasingly valued by clients (relative to the binders as footstools approach of many consulting firms). There are some very good project directors/principals to learn from, who aren't purely focused on selling.

    Cons

    With the economic downturn, Archstone has lost a lot of good people and with the hiring freeze, it is increasingly difficult to get work with the aforementioned strong directors/principals. Uncertain future given private equity ownership.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Leadership has shown the ability to make some difficult moves over the past year. However, many decisions (e.g. hiring, firing underperformers, changes in service offerings) are very delayed for a relatively small firm and the preference appears to be to avoid oversteering the ship almost to the point of just letting it steer itself at times.
