Pros

Office culture and centricity is great - most of my projects have been done without me having to travel all over. Also really appreciate that the principals are practioners; they really know their stuff and are not just a sales force.

Cons

Hours can be long and unpredictable. Some risk of being locked in more singular industry (Pharma), although that seems to be changing. This is a place where there are a lot of really analytical people - some evidence of analysis/paralysis.

Advice to Management

Have seen lots more communication on vision and strategy in the last year - great!! Please keep it coming and expand it. Be more aware of work/life balance challenges.

    Pros

    1. Smart and humble people to work with
    2. Flexibility to innovate on projects
    3. I can get work life balance when I need it

    Cons

    1. You mant get as much exposure to industries outside pharma
    2. You may enjoy the work if you are not into analytics

    Advice to Management

    Pay more attention to needs of senior managers in the company.
    Consider additional incentives for employees who innovate to explicitly encourage it

  2. Closest to a meritocracy that I have seen

    Pros

    The people - hands down the reason I am still here are the smart and caring people I work with
    The work - I enjoy what I do very much. I have had the chance to present to CEOs (as a consultant) and work primarily with Sr. Director / VP level. Not all projects are great but I feel that I can make a difference

    Cons

    Work hours can be long and depending on your office and focus, there can be more travel.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to improve on communication - it is easy to forget that not everyone is in senior managment meetings and understands what we are doing
