Good place to hone your skills for a few years

Analyst (Former Employee) Vienna, VA

ProsThere's not much in the way of "mid-level" consultants, so much of that *experience* falls to analysts
I've never seen an analyst get launched into a career from one of his/her cases, but the management are well connected and willing to help you end up where you want to be.
The work is extremely quantitative, and if that's the sort of work you like to do, this is a great place to get a real crash course in it
The other analysts are an interesting bunch to get to know

ConsThere's not much in the way of "mid-level" consultants, so much of that *work* falls to analysts
Hours and travel load are not evenly managed across the firm's teams, so don't draw the short straw. Even if you don't draw the short straw, work-life balance is wanting
Unless the prospect of bring a manager at a small consulting firm excites you, I don't see much long-term opportunity here.
Its a small firm, so the usual cons go here too (limited slate of cases, etc.)

Advice to Senior ManagementIt looks like management has been doing a good job turning around the firm culture. I'd say some of the reviews from a few years ago should be taken with a grain of salt.

My advice: keep working on it. Its better, but there's always room for improvement.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
