    Great small(er) firm that can really punch up

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    Lexington, MA

    ProsCulture
    - open compared to my other experiences
    - values-driven
    - real push for transparency in the firm, it's strategy and operations

    Compensation
    - competitive total comp packages (generous bonuses, 401k Match, insurance fully covered)

    Growth opportunities
    - the firm is growing and expanding its footprint. There are alot of opportunities to have an impact that are not always afforded at other firms

    Interesting projects
    - the projects really focus on growth, not cost-cutting

    ConsThough a feedback driven culture, sometimes it is not always clear where to focus and on what.

    While also a pro, the culture can be too formal.

    As the firm grows and transitions, work/life balance continues to be a challenge at times

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Excellent atmosphere, very smart people

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
    Watertown, MA

    ProsInnosight had a great "work ethic" for a consulting company -- there was no such thing as "face time." Projects were tackled with gusto and brilliance.

    ConsAt the time the company was going through growing pains. They needed to transition from a 3-partner governing unit to just one managing partner.

    Advice to Senior ManagementYour operations (human resources, office management) needs to be more efficient.

    Unique, evolving and unconventional!

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    Lexington, MA

    ProsExcellent compensation/benefits. Flexible work schedule. Large bonuses. Matching 401K and Profit Sharing. Paid for health, medical and dental benefits. Firm is always trying to improve.

    ConsOffice is a bit quiet. Located in Lexington, not Boston. It can be a bit gossipy. Can be tough to get top-down feedback.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Fun, Fast Growing Innovation Consulting Firm That Genuinely Cares About Its Employees"

    Associate (Current Employee)
    Watertown, MA

    Pros- Growing at 50% or so year over year. Amazing career potential as firm opens new offices and acquires new clients.
    - Extremely interesting projects (new business development, innovation capability building, etc.)
    - Diverse, genuinely passionate co-workers and management. VERY entrepreneurial culture.
    - Just the right about of travel. Work out of office instead of at client, except when traveling on average 2-3 times per month.
    - A TRUE work life balance. 9am - 6pm when not traveling. Flexibility to do
    - Comparable pay to other top tier firms such as McKinsey, Bain, BCG, etc., but with about 50% less hours (per hour compensation is nearly unbeatable)

    Cons- Less training and feedback than Big 3 (McK, Bain, BCG)
    - Potential for fast growth to weaken talent and culture, hurt work/life balance, and diminish quality of work (don't think it will happen though)
    - Watertown location and new office in Lexington, MA not ideal. Need higher profile, downtown offices in multiple locations.
    - Industry diversity: most projects in CPG, Financial Services, and Healthcare. Need to expand into new industries.

    Advice to Senior ManagementDon't grow too fast. It could hurt the firm in the long run. Continue to maintain work/life balance for employees despite growth. And keep up the good work!

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Great up and coming firm that punches way above its own weight. Enormous opportunity.

    Senior Associate (Current Employee)
    Watertown, MA

    Pros* Most interesting consulting work around - nearly every project is about identifying or developing new growth for businesses (e.g., new markets, new customers, new products/services)
    * Nature of consulting work leads to better work/life balance. You won't sift through enormous excel spreadsheets to create complicated pricing models... Also, travel is much less (at least in junior ranks). It varies by project, but average is probably 4 nights/month away from the office
    * Enormous personal and professional opportunity based on firms stage: This firm is young and small (~40 consultants), but growing its size and profile. Everyone at the firm is able to contribute to high profile client work, to write (and get published in Forbes, Business Week, HBR, etc) - even the analysts have opportunities to write for these publications - and find opportunities for promotion

    Cons* Firm's size and age (relatively small and young) mean that there isn't as much structure and feedback as other larger firms (the McBainCGs of the world) have. If you aren't the type who is comfortable knocking on a partner's door and saying "I'd like to try X, I think it would help the firm in Y way, can we talk about how I can do it?" then you might be disappointed, and feel like the promised opportunities never materialize for you.

    Advice to Senior ManagementArticulate more clearly the long-term career plans the firm has for its employees (e.g., if you want them to stay and not go to MBA, etc, lay out a path for them at the firm)

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
