    I worked at Dean & Company full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The work tends to be very analytical and interesting and the clients are top-tier. The recruiting process is very selective so you'll be awed by some of your classmates. Over the last couple years, the company has made a lot of changes and have promoted VP's to CMO and COO, which seems to have put more focus on growing the client base and improving the internal processes. The case managers on average tend to be pretty good. I think this is a great place for a quantitative type to begin learning about business.

    Cons

    Given that it's a small firm, the work tends to be concentrated in a few clients at any one time. The project flow can be uneven, especially on private equity, so you'll have some 75 hour weeks and other 45 hour weeks. Client contact and travel is uneven across projects. The training program is OK, but could use some upgrades

    Advice to Management

    The two areas that should be focused on are marketing and training. It would be good to expand into a few more industries but that takes time. Outside training options should be considered.
