Pros

World class training, amazing colleagues, amazing chances to have real impact at some genuinely spectacular clients

Long hours that you have to carefully manage; atmosphere of 'I can always do more' that can be demoralizing

Advice to Management

The West Coast office will be the first to break down fear as a motivator, and we can lead the world in this

    High impact work, a lot of responsibility working with pretty senior people in Fortune 500 companies. Hotels, points, per diems, happy hours are really cool

    Cons

    Quick promotional schedule leads to a cutthroat environment

    Advice to Management

    Do a better job of assessing fit for particular roles on studies
