    Great place to work out of school

    Consultant (Current Employee)
    Chicago, IL

    ProsFlexible schedules unless you have a lot of client work
    Relaxed work from home policy
    Great atmosphere, everyone is friendly and cool
    Good benefits and time off
    Good promotions

    ConsSometimes long hours or weekends, but that is consulting. Even so management appreciates hard work and rewards employees
    There may be long periods of time where you are not on a project or you are on the same project for a while, but again that comes with the industry

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

    Great people.

    Great internship experience

    Process Intern (Former Employee)
    Chicago, IL

    ProsYoung people, good training, and interns are treated as an actual consultant would be. There are travel opportunities, and some great events planned every week for interns. Management is also very accessible.

    ConsVery "frat-like" atmosphere, almost like being at college again. Also the scope of projects tends to be quite narrow, at least for the Risk and Compliance department, and you do a lot more Compliance than strategy work.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Former Consultant

    Risk Consultant II (Former Employee)
    Chicago, IL

    ProsPretty reasonable pay for the industry. The people and culture are what makes the company. Everyone is fairly young and very reasonable in terms of providing work load, etc. Unlike the Big 4 and/or other large employers, you can move up as quickly as you'd like if you work hard enough.

    ConsPrepare to travel nearly all of the time. Very little formal training, employees are often expected to perform in their job function with little to no guidance. Nature of most projects can be very dry.

    Advice to Senior ManagementDevelop more employee incentive travel plans, and training programs.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
