    An excellent job out of college to grow basic business skills and intuition

    Current Employee - Associate Consultant  in  Chicago, IL
    Current Employee - Associate Consultant in Chicago, IL

    Pros

    Great culture, very helpful colleagues, challenging work, excellent social atmosphere - your colleagues are also friends. Not at all competitive within your start group - I honestly have no idea who is at the top or bottom of the group.

    Cons

    The hours can vary dramatically - some 'lifestyle cases' are really only 45 hours a week or so, whereas the worst cases can peak at 100 (though rarely for more than a week). Average is probably in the 55-60 range.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Emphasize coaching and train CTLs/Managers/Partners how to be good coaches, not good critics
