    Pros

    Learn a ton, work on clients' most important problems, gain the 'consultant toolkit', awesome exit opportunities no matter what you want to do, great people who care a ton about helping you succeed

    Cons

    Work can become very process oriented and feel less impactful at times. Sometimes too little effort is put into fully understanding industry and company context. Culture can be a little overbearing (e.g. pressure to have all three meals together every day).

    Advice to Management

    Improve industry expertise so that teams can have better understanding of the client's industry on day 1 and throughout case

  2. Excellent place to learn with smart and fun co-workers

    Pros

    Strong culture of mentorship and learning pervades most day-to-day activities. There is a consistent focus to make sure employees are developing the skills they need to succeed.

    Variety of industry coverage and practice area capabilities. Regardless of particular area of interest, chances are the opportunity to work in it will pop up at some point.

    The people, can not emphasize enough how much this impacts the experience

    Cons

    The hours can get a bit long at times, and there is the potential for the experience to vary based on the cases assigned (i.e. working at only one company, vs. working at many)
