Analysis Group – Why Work With Us?


Consultants in the Boston office


We work on complex business problems in health care, technology, financial services, and other industries. Much of our efforts involve litigation, but we also partner with major corporations on a range of business issues. Our teams use skills in economics, finance, health analytics and outcomes, and strategy to analyze antitrust issues, securities fraud, patent infringement, environmental impact, merger disputes, and more.

If you join us, you will be able to sample a set of diverse opportunities. You will work closely with leading professors from our affiliate network to apply academic research to your client’s challenges, and also assist experts on our professional staff who testify in lawsuits.

Our teams work on complex business problems in a variety of industries, including health care, technology, financial services, and more. Our work for leading law firms, Fortune 500 companies, global health care corporations, and government agencies includes large-scale antitrust and securities class actions, intellectual property disputes, and valuations of multibillion-dollar investments.

We collaborate with leading academic experts to translate economic theory into real-world legal and business practice. Our teams use their skills in economics, finance, health analytics and outcomes, and strategy to analyze antitrust, securities fraud, patent infringement, environmental impact, and merger disputes. We assist clients with:

  • Pretrial discovery (helping to gather and analyze evidence)
  • Development of economic and financial models
  • Preparation of testimony
  • Critiques of opposing experts’ analyses
  • Risk assessments
  • Cost-benefit analyses
  • Industry and market analyses
  • Development of growth strategies
  • Outcomes research

We also provide pro bono economics consulting services to nonprofit organizations. Teams from Analysis Group work with these organizations to assess and develop projects that address their data and analytics needs. Our past projects include developing database management systems, designing surveys, and conducting a variety of statistical analyses to help nonprofits evaluate their programs’ effectiveness and demonstrate their impact to potential investors and grant foundations.

Our firm is large enough to work on high-profile cases, but small enough to allow you to contribute fully in engagements. We are structured enough to provide individualized mentoring and coaching, but flexible enough to give you exposure to many different practice areas.

Whether you join Analysis Group after college or after graduate school, you will benefit from our ongoing commitment to your career development, including:

  • Exposure to various practice areas to broaden your professional expertise
  • The opportunity to learn from expert colleagues and leading academic experts
  • The chance to work alongside leading attorneys, corporate executives, and specialists across industries
  • A range of training and professional development opportunities

Our distinctive, collaborative culture provides the underpinning for the success of our firm and our clients. We believe that a diverse workforce directly supports our goal to provide the highest-quality work, which drives our commitment to ensure equal opportunities regardless of gender, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, age, race, color, or religion. We attract a diverse, international pool of top talent from across the globe and invest in visa support for new hires. Our employees come from over 40 countries, speak more than 40 languages, and actively seek transfer opportunities across our 14 global offices. In addition, we partner with organizations that specialize in recruiting, training, and coaching minorities, and our firm-wide AG Pride group provides opportunities for LGBTQ staff to meet, hosts quarterly events for all employees to connect, and plays a role in recruiting. We also strive to ensure that our employees maintain a healthy balance between work and life outside the office. Although hours may fluctuate from week to week (as is typical with consulting positions), travel requirements are minimal, which allows for a high degree of flexibility and contributes toward a positive work/life balance. We also sponsor sports teams and fun events for our employees, and offer benefits that include tuition and fitness reimbursement, backup child care, and eldercare. In addition, we offer annual holiday and summer parties open to families and guests, as well as annual ski trips to resorts such as Stowe, Steamboat, Lake Placid, or Tahoe. And, we encourage employees to design events for their peer groups. 

We are proud of our culture and of how our professionals feel about their work environment. In 2014, Analysis Group received the Boston Bar Association’s President’s Award for the firm’s pro bono work on civil legal aid and homelessness, and the firm’s innovative approach to recruitment has been featured prominently in major outlets, including the Financial Times and Leaders magazine.

We have also been recognized as a best place to work in several top surveys, including nationally from Glassdoor.com (Best Places to Work, Employees’ Choice Award, small and medium business category) and Vault.com (Vault Consulting 50 ranking of the top consulting firms in the US); and in Massachusetts from the Boston Globe (Top Places to Work, large employers category).

Advancement at Analysis Group is based on merit, reflecting individuals’ contributions to case work and to client and academic relationships. Leadership and listening skills are highly valued, as are intellectual curiosity, rigorous attention to detail, and a record of outstanding work. Employees are promoted based on their ability to assist in the development of economic, strategic, and financial models; analyze raw economic, financial, and operational data; model complex economic and financial solutions; and assist in the preparation of reports and presentation materials. 

"While many firms talk about development, I think Analysis Group walks the walk. The senior people really feel that they don't succeed unless they help younger consultants grow." – Vault.com Survey

For those junior-level employees (analysts and associates) seeking a long-term career with Analysis Group, we require a commitment to completing a course of graduate study. To that end, we provide multidimensional support for analysts who plan to apply to graduate school. This support encompasses group workshops and individualized assistance with applications, as well as access to other resources, information, and advice.

Many former analysts return to Analysis Group as associates after completing top graduate programs.

    Pros

    Extremely intelligent and motivated colleagues, who are also friendly and nice. Everyone genuinely wants to help you learn and develop your skills. The Boston office has an annual ski trip to Stowe and an awesome holiday party at the MFA. I’ve heard from colleagues in other offices that they have similar events as well (San Francisco goes to Tahoe to ski). The Boston office space is beautiful, and every analyst gets their own office. The training here is also top notch, with analysts having mandatory training sessions in Excel, SAS, Stata, R, VBA, and lots of optional courses as well if you want to focus on a particular programming language. This could be a pro or a con, but compared to management consulting there is very little travel. Work life balance in consulting can be difficult, but not traveling makes it easier for me. As far as exit opportunities, most analysts leave to go to top grad schools, and AG helps prepare you with an extensive grad school workshop series.

    Cons

    Consulting can have long and unpredictable hours, and economic consulting adds the additional layer of non-negotiable court deadlines. I’ve definitely had some late nights working with my team. AG has an internal labor market, which is essentially how you find your cases. Some people love it because it allows them to network their way into the cases they want, but I would personally appreciate a little more structure and help finding cases.

    Advice to Management

    Hours and hours are dedicated to the annual review process because every person goes through a detailed qualitative 360-review. I appreciate that leadership wants the most complete picture possible, but I feel like there must be a more efficient way to do this.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Analysis Group.

    Interview

    Went through university recruiting. First round was a few behavioral questions and then talked about Econometrics research and the models I used.

    Second round was on site and 5 back to back interviews. One was entirely behavioral and the others were deep dives into projects.
