Pros

It is a great place if you want to build up your expertise in one field, such as consumer goods, financial services, energy, etc.

Cons

It would be difficult to get cross-industry staffing, for example, if you are in energy and want to work in health, then it is pretty hard...

Advice to ManagementAdvice

It would be beneficial to staff junior people across different industries to help them gain more exposure to various business, which will be helpful for their long-term development

    Pros

    An great place filled with truly dynamic people, Booz is a great place to launch or accelerate a career, or make a long-term home for those interested in career consulting. As someone who has worked at multiple consulting firms the key advantages are:

    -A dynamic entrepreneurial environment; unlike the rest of MB3 consultants at Booz are free to work across many clients and launch their own products and offerings. Regardless of level, if you can think up a great project and a client wants to buy it you are free to do so.
    -A truly diverse environment; the company is filled not only with top tier MBAs, but PHDs, industry experts, and top consultants from various backgrounds and all parts of the world
    -Embracing the future: The company's new strategy is replacing the Monday-Thursday paradigm with a more flexible, and impactful travel model. We go onsite and meet with our clients where and when it makes sense, not just because its the thing to do.

    Cons

    While more flexible than other places the hours are still long and the work is still challenging, and management consulting is not everyone's cup of tea.

    While the overall firm is leading the way with a new work model, change takes time and as team member you have to be cognizant of the style of people around you.

    The hub offices offer great experiences for employees (e.g., New York, San Fran, Chicago, etc.), but some partners still insist on maintaining and attempting to recruit to offices off the beaten path (e.g., Cleveland) and need to come to terms with the reality of where high value consultants want to work and live in the new economy.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to believe in and push the new strategy and operating models.
