    I have been working at Analytic Partners full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    A supportive, friendly environment - you hear about consultancies being competitive and intense. Here, everybody is trying to do a good job and help others do well too. We help each other on projects, readily give advice, and try to make everybody feel good about their work. You can be honest about your mistakes and challenges, because people will just try to help you out.

    We laugh a lot - everybody is a little quirky, nerdy, kind, and smart, which makes for lots of good natured jokes that lighten the mood. We like eachother and eat lunch together and have company-sponsored happy hours every month or so and a few beers on Fridays.

    Reasonable hours - 9-6 M-F, there is no pressure to stay late to look good. I've had to work more than that, about 50 hours, only few times in a year. It would be great to work less, but it's a job thing

    Live in Charlottesville - Best place ever. Beautiful, historic, small town. I thought I'd have to live in a big city to have a job like this, using best in class tech and advising Fortune 100 clients. Nope, you can do that right here.

    Client facing and challenging analytics - You'll be prepping the data, creating models, creating insights and presentations, and you'll be delivering the results. That way, you are developing a diverse skill set and doing lots of interesting things rather than just one.

    Cons

    Not always seeing the results of your work - Clients don't always listen to your recommendations. I want to build actionable insights and see the work I do create value. There is less transparency than if you were doing analytics internally.

    Heavy and light periods - I don't always have a good project because data comes in piecemeal or there is a lull in projects.

    Reasonable hours - but hey, it would be nice to have less ;)

    Not being in headquarters/ bigger company - Having an idea to implementing it, it may take a while or not happen because it may be challenging to see whether/ how your idea fits into the bigger picture of the company and other peoples' skills and roles.

    Pros

    -The people: I am consistently impressed and amazed by the talent and intelligence of the people I work with. My direct managers are great to work with and do a good job of leading by example. The environment is collaborative rather than cutthroat, and if I run into a serious problem, there are always people to turn to for assistance and support.

    The work: Overall, the work is interesting and challenging without being overwhelming. The nature of the work means that you are rarely stuck working on the same project or task for extended periods which helps to keep certain aspects from getting tedious. Developing insights and seeing impact and buy-in from a client is extremely gratifying.

    The opportunities: Being in an in demand field means that there are always new and exciting projects to be a part of. The aggressive growth trajectory of the company means there are lots of ways to take on leadership roles and responsibility. The constant evolution of tools and methodology means you are constantly learning and developing new skills.

    Cons

    Benefits and compensation: While I have seen many positive changes in this area in my time at the company, this has been a bit of a lackluster area compared to other aspects of the company. Continued improvement here is important to retain and attract top talent.

    Resources: Being outside of the headquarters in NYC, from a technical resource perspective I have sometimes felt like our office is an afterthought. Growth in personnel hasn't necessarily been followed by an increase in technical resources. Unavailability of laptops due to travel or malfunction has led to a few uncomfortable moments of prioritization. Generally it feels like as a satellite office, we are the last to get access to new resources or initiatives (laptops, webcams, snacks, etc.)

    Pros

    I accepted my first job post-undergrad at AP and haven't looked back since. The people are its greatest asset as everyone is always willing to help one another no matter how busy they may be. Company culture is great insofar as caring about employee growth. Additionally, the small size of the company allows for opportunity to get involved and take initiatives (e.g., sports teams, corporate service events, company outings, etc.) Another result of being a small company is client exposure. Even at the analyst level, there's plenty of client engagement which has helped me to grow extensively. Work load is generally manageable, but ebbs and flows like most consulting companies. Well respected name in the marketing analytics field and has a plan to continue strong growth!

    Cons

    Company is trying to do better in this respect but resource management can be a pain point. Some teams will experience heavy workload that could be distributed to a team with a lighter one. Despite this, I've enjoyed my time at AP and found workload to seem to have a great work-life balance relative to other people I've talked to in the consulting field.

    Advice to Management

    Keep working at better resource management and growing the company!

    Pros

    I am a recent hire with AP supporting the CEO. I've worked for quite a few big four financial firms. My experience with the recruiting process from the very first screening was absolutely outstanding. My recruiter went over and beyond my expectations and placed a customized personal touch on the entire process by providing insightful pointers, thorough history on the company and very timely follow up. Her level of professionalism is very high and I can appreciate that coming from a background of the same.

    Cons

    I haven't experienced any cons.
