    They will work you to the bone, with no consideration for your personal life, but it's great for your resume

    Current Employee - Associate in Bethesda, MD

    Pros

    *Amazingly smart people
    *High quality output
    *Strong compensation plan

    Cons

    *Work/life balance is horrendous
    *Zero job security - when the economy is down, hoards of consultants are let go
    *Very political despite what it claims

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Implement a true "one firm" strategy - politics are rampant, with each office constituting its own little fiefdom with its favorites. Also stop lying to yourselves about your employees being happy - everyone's here to get 1) a resume-booster, 2) money, 3) combination thereof, knowing full well that the product of their labor ends up in Partners' pockets
