    I worked at Compass Lexecon full-time

    Pros

    Great work, high profile cases, smart colleagues. This company get consulting engagements that are very interesting and intellectually stimulating. Salary is okay but you get paid for overtime which is wonderful.

    Cons

    Politics sucks and case managers have complete control over your life. Forget about personal space or anything called work-life -balance. This company does not speak that language. You will become a robot and get disconnected from the rest of the world. You will not have weekends, nothing really.

    Advice to Management

    Please hire more analysts or push back on work load. It would be nice if analysts can be allowed some personal time especially on weekends. Employees shouldn't feel bad about taking a weekend off once in a while.
