    Sep 24, 2014 - Senior Analyst 
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    - Other analysts are extremely intelligent and enjoyable to work with. It was a very collaborative atmosphere and everyone was extremely nice, helpful, and had a good attitude. - Specific associates, managers, and VPs are also extremely intelligent and helpful. If you work under the right individual, you can learn a lot. - Very flat organization. You will have a lot of interaction with senior management and do not have to go through the chain of command to send an email or express an idea.

    Cons

    - Senior management is terrible at not only managing client expectations and workload, but also distributing work. Because they do not know what they want, analysts spend days working on something only to have it nixed. Part of this is the nature of the work, but a lot of it is from senior management's unwillingness to push back against clients because at the end of the day, the clients are willing to pay to have the extra work done regardless of how meaningless senior management knows it will be. - If you're not in the Boston office, the training is not that good. After seeing the training received by analysts in Boston, I could not believe that it wasn't uniform across the offices. - There is a lot of nepotism in the firm. In theory, it should not matter what cases you work on, so long as you work hard for the firm. In practice, if you work on cases that are not run by a managing principal, it will affect your compensation and potential promotion. I've seen this occur at all levels within the firm (analyst to senior analyst, associate to manager, manager to VP). It is a very big problem. - When I started, there was a promise of diverse casework and the ability to create your own path in an 'internal labor market'. In practice, you will get assigned to a case and have little options or potential to work on anything else. Specific offices (not Boston) tend to be specialized, and you may get stuck on a case that you hate and will be unable to get out of. If you express your desire to work on other cases, it is looked down upon by senior management. As other reviews have noted, they will not directly express this dislike, but it will later manifest itself in some form of passive aggression. - There is very little work life balance despite the insistence by the CEO that the firm strives to achieve it. There were many times where I was told on Friday at 6:30 PM that I would need to work over the weekend. Additionally, it often did not matter what time I got into the office, as work would spring up in the afternoon and you would have to stay late to get it done regardless of how early you got into the office. It was impossible to make plans after work that I could 100% commit to. The firm does not pay enough at the analyst level (in some offices, particularly NYC, SF, and MP, given that compensation is equal across offices) to compensate the demand of being constantly on call. - Casework is generally boring and monotonous. Talking with analysts who worked at AG several years prior, this has been a recent change as offices have specialized and started to bring in the same work for the same clients. - AG is not well known by other firms and the experience can be hard to sell, which makes it difficult to move to a firm outside of economic consulting. There is very little client interaction and the job does not lend itself to networking.

    Pros

    -Good compensation for consulting (not as good as investment banking and you'll be working almost as much) -Nice perks -People are very smart

    Cons

    -Zero work/life balance (even though they tell you otherwise)--you never know how late you're going to be working or whether you can take a Saturday off -People are literally graded on how quickly they respond to emails on holidays, vacations, etc -Tedious work, emphasis on perfect formatting over substance -You will work for a lot of clients who've done distasteful or illegal things -Difficult to transfer your experience here to other fields This company is dishonest about culture and expectations during the hiring process, and the dishonesty starts at the top.

    Smart and motivated people but claim of good work/life balance is misleading

    Oct 3, 2014 - Senior Analyst in Boston, MA
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Everyone at AG is incredibly smart and motivated. Within your first year, you gain tons of technical skills. A lot exposure to interesting case work.

    Cons

    Case work over time becomes monotonous and your work becomes more about formatting exhibits. Case managers who do not know how to manage can make your experience a nightmare. Misleading claims about good work/life balance (I would not say working 60-80 hours a week as having good work/life balanceg good work/life balanceg good work/life balance) as you're constantly on call. Pay is on the lower end considering the long hours.
