Compensation is off the charts, but that can't make up for shoddy management and muddled strategy

Pros

Everyone you work with at the ground level is smart; some of the principals are too.
Benefits are pretty incredible.
Overall, you are treated with respect.

Cons

Muddled strategy leads to messy project management.
New strategy doesn't have much buy-in from partners or junior staff.
Firm services perennially gets the shaft from client staff and management.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Work out the infighting between global regional leadership. It's embarrassing to see otherwise capable and brilliant people acting like bratty children!

    I have been working at Booz & Company full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great place to work. I have not really met any single person that I've not enjoyed working with. Company seems to reward people well with promotions. Get to work on some interesting problems. I've had good work-life balance

    Cons

    Some lack of direction. General obsessiveness of beating McKinsey, or using them as a benchmark, as opposed to just focusing on what we do best and going with it

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on Booz
