    I learned a lot, but was extremely overworked

    Research Analyst (Former Employee) Cambridge, MA

    ProsYou learn a lot about excel and statistical programs, and sometimes have opportunities to hone writing skills. I felt I left with a lot of concrete skills that I did not have going in. The benefits were also great - high quality insurance, etc.

    ConsThe work-life balance was terrible.

    Advice to Senior ManagementListen more to RAs about their experiences, and don't take them for granted so much. Also, if you want folks to stay beyond two years, you need to rework the model.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Great place to gain experience

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Cambridge, MA

    ProsLoved working here while I was developing my career. The benefits were AMAZING!!! My managers really worked with me to find my place there and grow.

    ConsThey do not promote on the support staff as they should. The firm begun to change culture wise as I was leaving. The focus on the employee was turned to the company making money.

    Good work experience? Yes. Will you enjoy yourself? No.

    Research Analyst (Former Employee) Cambridge, MA

    ProsAs with most prestigious consulting firms, the pay is high, and the benefits are great. Additionally, a lot can be learned from the more senior people at the firm. The RA role serves as a great jumping-off point for future education.

    ConsThe culture amongst the analyst-level people is unhealthy. Each analyst ends up competing for work against other analysts, and consequently, analysts feel compelled to overwork themselves "today" to ensure that they will have work to do "tomorrow." Additionally, project managers tend to play favorites with analysts, and the work distribution is therefore clique-driven.

    Advice to Senior ManagementMore attention needs to be paid to work-life balance. It should not be thought of as "work v. life," but more as "life... of which, work is a part."

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

    A terrific work atmosphere and the privilege to work with some of the best minds in the industry.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsCompany-paid benefits, bonus and profit-sharing, free snacks and beverages, weekly office parties.

    ConsLittle room for growth if you are not on the consulting side, difficult to push change with upper management.

    Advice to Senior ManagementCompany needs a more efficient decision-making process, management needs to consider company as a whole more and not themselves when making decisions.

    Smart people, but too much hiring of outsiders

    Associate (Current Employee) Cambridge, MA

    ProsWorking with really smart people with lots of knowledge and experience.
    Good benefits and a collegial environment.

    ConsThe emphasis is clearly to hire outside rainmakers rather than to promote current senior consultants. There is an increasing focus on the few at the top at the expense of other consulting staff.

    Advice to Senior ManagementSlow down hiring at the top and focus on hiring good associates.

    – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
