Interesting work, insane hours

Consultant (Former Employee) Boston, MA

ProsVery interesting economic work. I was very proud in the quality of work that we provided clients.

Brilliant people at all levels that take their work seriously and are good to have on the team.

Good compensation.

Nice offices downtown.

ConsExtremely long hours. No, I do not mean an average of 60 hours/week. 60 hour weeks are the minimum norm. Expect 80 hour+ weeks now and then and expect to pull some all nighters. Say goodbye to your friends and family and sleep.

The experience is great if you can handle it. Most come here to work for a few years before going to graduate school and the job definitely helps you get in to a top notch MBA or Law school.

Advice to Senior ManagementMost employees expect demanding work and hours in economic consulting but come on...hire a few extra people so that your otherwise nice and smart employees do not turn into sniping, mean overworked zombies. Letting consultants drink on the company's dime once a month does not compensate for this.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
