    I worked at Dean & Company full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Project pipeline is strong
    Smart and energetic colleagues--- particularly the analysts
    Interesting work that makes an impact
    Management is better than in years past

    Cons

    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.

    Summer Analyst Interview

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Dean & Company (Vienna, VA) in February 2017.

    Interview

    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.
