    Pros

    Only southern california strategy boutique, has a small close to the client practice. You learn on the job with a mentor analyst, not in a classroom. Projects are international so you'll pick up country specific learning. Now doing venture projects and acquisitions. Covers range of industries. Little chance to be bored. Good office environment and new people brought in last year by new director much improved. Company now moves people to roles based on merit, not years or degree. New benefits and perks based on employee feedback. Turnover low, only one analyst, leftover from past, left to work in accounting career. Dumb move, but ended transition to new culture and environment.

    Cons

    A Professor ran company until last summer. Morale was bad I heard and people were unhappy. New director replaced professor, last summer and cleaned up changed recruiting, new structure, and live training. Some people who worked in here in the past were unqualified from what I've seen. No longer. If you need spoon feeding and classroom teaching then this is not for you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Changes in 2011 good. Projects and people much better. Move out remaining under achiever. Keep hiring accomplishment oriented, team players. Make training more formal, create a full time HR position, plus never hire accounting wannabes again. It's a great place to work, everyone motivated to want it to be even better. Lunches and newsletter were good additions.

    Pros

    Autonomy.
    Fast-paced.
    Satisfactory compensation.
    Employees from various background.

    Cons

    High turnover rate.
    Vague information in terms of opportunities and promotions.

    Majority of consultancy work are done by cold-calling competitors and trying to pry information from them.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay attention to your employees' capabilities and work ethics instead of which school they graduated from.
