Former Employee - Fnance in Boston, MA
Former Employee - Fnance in Boston, MA

I worked at Charles River Associates full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

Lot's of opportunities. Compensation and benefits are good. Work environment is good but hours vary widely according to projects and area of expertise. Field offices seem like better places to work but offer fewer opportunities.

Cons

Everything is distilled down to its simplist component - what does it mean for my bonus. Senior management has tried to build team environment but they are as guilty of the bonus driven culture as anyone.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Important to settle on a strategy and act on it - too often strategies for groups or geographic offerings change course leaving others behind.
