Great learning experience

Senior Associate (Former Employee)
New York, NY

ProsAmazingly smart, capable co-workers
Intense focus on delivering results
Culture of cooperation and helping each other succeed
Opportunity to gain experience very quickly in many areas

ConsReal focus of the firm is on building relationships with clients and selling more projects
Most projects are on very un-inspiring problems like setting prices or managing call centers
Generally don't feel like you're making the world a better place, and sometimes are finding profitable ways to make it worse

Advice to Senior ManagementDrive for expansion and growth has led to taking on more and more projects, and developing relationships with more and more clients. This means less ability to pick and choose the opportunities where the firm can make an important contribution. Consider more focus, and less growth
