    Pros

    Good review and feedback process.
    Good compensation.

    Cons

    Very low employee satisfaction and morale -- leading to high annual turnover (50%+)
    Poor communication of important decisions affecting employees
    Poor allocation of resources (employees as well as costs)
    Recruiting process is deceptive about work culture
    Very variable in lifestyle, hours and management style depending on who's your manager
    Staffing process is arbitrary and unfair, human resource policies are poor.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try and learn about how to effectively manage your human resources. Realize the value of current employee knowledge, especially given the lack of training. Pay more attention to work life balance.

    I worked at Dean & Company full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    -Very high quality consulting projects. Projects range across a broad spectrum: M&A deal support, CRM strategy, competitive strategy and financial planning and analysis. Good exposure to a number of industries. Private equity relationships are valued very highly in the industry.
    -Great place to build consulting and business skills: Senior client interaction is very common. Projects are very analytical in nature. In addition to consulting projects, Dean also offers a number of business development opportunities.
    -Opportunity to work with very smart people. Recruitment is very selective and the consulting folks who I interacted with throughout my duration were very bright.
    -Compensation is good
    -As one becomes tenured, company is very flexible in accommodating requests to improve work-life balance

    Cons

    -Unpredictable hours
    -Limited alumni network
    -Sometimes cases can be long with limited opportunities to diversify experience

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest in business development and leadership training for the mid-level consultants.
