    Run Away!

    Consultant (Former Employee) Chicago, IL

    ProsTravel was nice, working in hospitals was interesting, you learn a lot, can take your work product to the next level.

    ConsEverything. You name it and it is mostly a con. Horrible management. Cronyism. Typical kiss up, kick down management style. Felt like prison.

    Advice to Senior ManagementGet rid of 10 or so Managing Directors that are acting like a sea anchor.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    I've had a great learning experience, but career opportunities depend heavily on your team

    Analyst (Current Employee) New York, NY

    ProsWork life balance is variable depending on your group; here in Healthcare you can vary from 40-60 easily

    ConsBad track record of hiring experienced people. They only nail it about 1/4 the time, and they fail miserably 1/4 the time.

    Advice to Senior ManagementContinue to develop yourselves as leaders. Invest in more training for experienced hires when necessary, and be more selective of those you choose.

    Smart People, Difficulty integrating experienced hires

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsPeople are smart, young and capable. Leadership is finding the right areas to expand to continue to grow. Great emphasis on training. Lots of opps to travel.

    ConsGrowing pains of pushing out of typical methodology, some outdated tools. Promotion process can be pretty complex and you have to have the right people in your court.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThey are doing all the right things to keep the company moving in a positive direction poised for growth.

    Not the Best Job in the world, but reasoanble

    Document Review (Former Employee) Washington, DC

    ProsThey offered a doc review experience while I was waiting to hear for my Bar Result. Pay was OK. Their D.C. location had clean facility. Great to earn your living while waiting to get a real permanent job.

    ConsThe work can be really tedious. Some folks just cannot handle the constant eye strain they'd get by doing the review all day.

    White boys club

    Associate (Current Employee) Chicago, IL

    ProsGood work life benefits ,compensation and perks.

    ConsTake a look at the board of directors (All white). Take a look at the schools they hire from(Southern Christian schools). This is a white boys club and no amount of pink ribbon, blue ribbon helps. As a POC there have been numerous instances when I have felt racism under the radar. Its not prominent enough to ring alarm bells but the whole attitude would make you understand.

    Advice to Senior ManagementHire Mitt Romney and a few more old Arthur Andersen white boys.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
