I worked at Booz & Company full-time

Pros

Some great people
Great start to a career - broad exposure across industries
Good Ops capabilities

Cons

Acidic culture
Most partners are there for themselves - willing to do whatever it takes to the rest of the staff to improve payout for the partners

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Find mechanisms to cull out partners that have retired, but are still there

    I have been working at Booz & Company full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    - Top tier talent; seriously, some of the smartest people you can ever hope to work with all in one place!
    - Very cool projects: Booz is less focused on mega-transformation projects than McKinsey. Smaller firm means smaller, sexier strategy projects are still able to make a dent in the P&L
    - Great brand: globally #4 and in fact #1 throughout the entire ME region.

    Cons

    - Probably fewer slide production/graphic design resources than some of our bigger competitors
    - Less scale means less expertise. While it is very cool in some ways to be on the first team to tackle a particular business problem at Booz, it can create a lot of work since our solution is entirely new. McKinsey and BCG for instance, being bigger, have more resources for more types of problems, so there is less reinventing the wheel and therefore better WLB in some cases.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep on the path you're going. The changes such as the project index and global culture survey have done a lot for work-life balance and culture improvement. Looking forward to seeing the next thinking on workplace of the future and flexible work arrangements.
