    Former Employee - Consultant in New York, NY

    I worked at Oliver Wyman full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    awesome culture, huge investment in people, very top-rated talent.

    I learned a ton from this experience, got a very solid consulting tool kit, and was very prepared for my career post-consulting (analytical tool kit, ability to diagnose, structure, and solve diverse business problems). I owe that to the people who mentored me in my early days at OW

    Cons

    Overall business strategy is questionable. Not sure what top management's direction is or how well they'll integrate the two firms (Mercer and OW Finance).

    Also, post-MBA recruiting strategy needs to be more comprehensive.

    Finally, can diversify industries represented further.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get your recruiting and business strategy together!
