    Pros

    I have been working at Analysis Group for about eight months and it has been the most challenging and rewarding work environment I have ever experienced. You are working with an incredibly smart and kind group of individuals who constantly push each other to share thoughts and ideas and do their best work. Aside from the wonderful environment and culture, the firm does an excellent job of taking care of their employees. The compensation and benefits are excellent, and there are tons of great events to take part in both in and out of the office. They even take the entire Boston office (~500 people) up to Stowe for a ski/spa weekend!

    Cons

    I honestly have not experienced any cons. I truly enjoy coming to work everyday.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work. This is an A+ company.

    Pros

    A few nice people;
    A few smart people;
    Promotion for loyalty

    Cons

    Extremely clique-y;
    The constant battle between Ph.D.s (sophisticated but lack of real management skills) and MBAs (good communication but cannot produce or consume complex analysis)

    Advice to Management

    There are many different ways to succeed at AG, but it is safe to assume it involves intellect, self promotion, and having the right people on your side who can give you opportunities. The pyramid structure (a few partners, lots of mid-layer VPs and managers) can be a set-up-to-fail model, as it leads to hunger game/zero sum game situation when you know only the fittest (fit for AG that is) will survive. Lateral hires rarely do well here - of course the biological kids (analysts getting MBA and coming back) beat adopted kids! Some AG folks have zero tolerance for healthy debates or having their authorities challenged. It's almost amusing to see minimally talented people protecting their sad little turf when you know they cannot make it at AG.

    "Work is good quality. Is it a good place for women?"

    I worked at Analysis Group full-time

    Pros

    There is an emphasis on delivering good quality work. All work is audited carefully. In some offices you can work on many different types of cases. In other offices work is limited in scope. For example, my office did mostly IP work which does not have as much analysis as some other areas. But there are experts in this area and you can learn a lot from them.

    People take pride in their work. You can learn from experts. Analysts help each other a lot. All colleagues try to help Analysts with the next step in their career.

    Cons

    They don't bring in people with experience from other firms or other industries. They do things exactly as how they have always been doing even though many things have progressed in terms of knowledge and technology. Other firms are using more advanced stuff. But AG has no inflow of outside ideas at experienced levels.

    I felt badly for women (Associates and up) in my office. Analysts are ok I think. There were only two senior women, one partner and one VP. All women kept a low profile even though they were all smart. Women (Associates and up) were not seen in the dining room where only senior men eat. Many men have only worked at AG for many years and so do not realize how they sound to younger people who come from college campuses where the definition of appropriate has changed . It is a strange environment with limited opportunities for women professionally in this office. I feel badly for my female colleagues. I am not talking about anything inappropriate personally. Only in terms of professional advancement.

    Advice to Management

    Be open to new technology. Refresh your aging knowledge base with new advances in practice and research.
    Treatment of women professionally is a topic of conversation. Please listen.

    Pros

    Great company to work for if you're looking for intellectually stimulating, complex work; strong collaborative culture; flexible case staffing approach

    Cons

    Unpredictable schedule and workload at times, and as with all consulting firms, some projects can be less interesting than others; flexible case staffing approach

    Advice to Management

    Ensure that culture is maintained as firm grows, but seek to introduce organizational changes - e.g., organized case staffing - that may work more effectively at larger firm
