    I have been working at Compass Lexecon full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Smart colleagues, pleasant atmosphere, free food. Casework is sometimes interesting; if senior staff grow to like you, they'll involve you in more analytical thinking and modeling.

    Cons

    Lots of work on evenings and weekends, often without advance warning. Much of the work for analysts and senior analysts can be quite tedious--data entry, formatting, printing binders.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Warn people about the evening and weekend work very clearly before they commit. Some folks burn out on it, and everyone can make better decisions with more information ahead of time.

    I have been working at Compass Lexecon full-time

    Pros

    People are top-notch. Casework is very interesting. The company as a whole is quite organized and relatively independent from FTI which is an ok company from what I have seen.

    Cons

    Long hours are pretty standard-the company as whole is always busy with high-profile engagement, mostly mergers and litigation.
