    Pros

    Great team environment. Coworkers were well versed in discipline. Smart people doing the job together. Management looked inside for internal candidates.

    Well the upper management putting all eggs in one basket and then the product failed causing massive layoffs and office closures.

    I have been working at Arthur D. Little

    Pros

    - Very smart and driven colleagues - Competes/is among the best (on almost all assignments competing with MBB) - Company is rapidly growing (a nice experience, which you cannot find with other consultants) - Not all areas and industry players are clients/covered, meaning there is an opportunity to explore new terrain (not the case at the bigger competitors, where the partners are already in touch with every player)...

    Cons

    - For consulting, narrow areas of expertise in certain offices (because of the smaller size of some offices, they generally have to focus on a handful of industries so your exposure to different industries might be less compared to at othre bigger strategy consultants) - Compensation marginally lower compared to MBB

    I worked at Arthur D. Little

    Pros

    Arthur D Little is a good company global with excellent Management from the CEO, Global Finance Director and COO.

    Cons

    Arthur D Little office in Dubai unfortunately is a disappointment. Some senior management do not care about staff, especially non direct staff. Bullying other staff and management actions are zero or sweeping it under the carpet.

    Advice to Management

    To see staff as assets and not just people you can just sack and replace. Have the courage to take a stand against staff who are bullies even if they are friends.
