I have been working at Oliver Wyman full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

Some of the smartest people I know without the attitude I find prevalent at a lot of the other consulting firms. The Toronto office in particular is a lot of fun with Friday Office Drinks and a collegial atmosphere.

Cons

The name isn't all that well known - but it's getting a lot better. The hours are rough, but that's to be expected in consulting.

    I worked at Oliver Wyman part-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    The company values work life balance, and for some positions there can be flexibility in your work schedule and opportunities for part time employment with benefits. The people are mostly very professional and pleasant to work with.

    Cons

    Back in the good days this company used to treat support staff as a part of the whole team. The compensation scheme was generous and support staff were invited to all company functions along with the consultants. Those days are long over; now it's like anywhere else in Corporate America. The bigger the company gets, the less resource is budgeted for the support staff, which sets up the support staff for failure.
