Pros

Exposure to a variety of clients and career enriching technical experiences. Great people. Excellent opportunities to network. The firm is always looking to advance good people and give talented people the opportunities to learn and grow in their careers.

Cons

Too many hours spread over too small a staff. No work-life balance. Year-round "busy season" with pressure to bill less and be more efficient turning into associates "eating" hours.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Value your high potential employees by affording them a better work-life balance.

    Pros

    Good clients, fast paced, good reputation in general.

    Cons

    Like many companies, it isn't what you know but who you know. Company is too big for its own good just like other companies of its ilk. Why anyone would really want to work for these types of companies is beyond me now. They are all like MLM companies but on a bigger scale. Start as a little minion and try and work your way up. You better be drinking the kool-aid and start in these companies early if you want any chance of success to make the big money at the partner level. Better find someone to be your guardian angel along the way as well.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look beyond the reviews of people as they are often just about the personal relationships people have rather than their professional ones.

    Doesn't Recommend

    Pros

    If you are able to transition clients you can get a good deal of experience in multiple industries. Good work-life balance.

    Cons

    Hard to transfer to different practices within the firm. Promotions dont always seem fair. Most advisory work is not very technical and very business process oriented.
