Meritocratic but aggressive firm is a good fit for industry-agnostic college grads seeking fast career progression.

Consultant (Former Employee) Dallas, TX

ProsTruly meritocratic: managers will promote anyone who deserves it, regardless of age or tenure. Easy to get international assignments. The organization is willing to take risks and act differently from other large consulting organizations (for example, by hiring less MBA's and forcing earlier specialization). Competitive pay.

ConsTrigger-happy management in regard to layoffs. No serious checks & balances regarding work/life balance. "Industry generalist" job titles seem generalist in name only for many who are effectively forced to specialize in an industry from day one.

Advice to Senior ManagementContinue to take risks to differentiate OW from competitors, but be more candid with potential hires about what they can expect to like and dislike through a job at OW.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
