I worked at Dean & Company full-time (More than a year)
Project pipeline is strong
Smart and energetic colleagues--- particularly the analysts
Interesting work that makes an impact
Management is better than in years past
Project mix not varied
Location in suburbs not ideal
Remote managers not always engaged
Owners not visible and their long-term strategy is unclear
Advice to Management
Keep building the project pipeline. A broader array of projects would lead to a better learning experience. Ensure that the junior managers are getting fully trained-- senior managers need to be more engaged on this front.
It feels like the owners aren't really interested in the consulting business. It would be good to know what their goal is over the long run.
I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Dean & Company (Vienna, VA) in February 2017.
The interview consisted entirely of a pretty obscure, but interesting case. It was highly mathematically-based (not with actual numbers - think more graphs and understanding trends). Interviewer was very helpful and supportive during the entire process.
