    Pros

    You'll learn some stuff. Mostly the inverse of to run a small business. Things like, how not to treat your staff, how not to diversify your client base, how not to build a world class team.

    Cons

    See above. The business is run like a gas station. The partners pull every penny out and refuse to invest in growth. The business is feeding off the decaying carcass of dying tech titans. If you want to know why the leading tech companies of the 90s are now also rans, join Keystone! They were instrumental in bringing about that decline/

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Quit. Stop destroying good companies with your pseudo babble. Leave the consulting to the pros like BCG and McKinsey.

    Pros

    Managing Partners work tirelessly hard alongside everyone else, feels more like a family than a strategy consulting firm (while still having all of the strategy consulting firm perks!), projects are fascinating and with leading companies who care about pushing the envelope.

    Cons

    Sometimes the hours can be challenging when working to meet aggressive project deadlines--but this comes with the territory.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the great work, really looking forward to seeing the company become one of the global leaders in strategy consulting.

    Positive Outlook
