      I have been working at Bates White Economic Consulting full-time for more than 2 years

      Pros

      Junior staff are exceptional thanks to fastidious recruiting. Company has well-cultivated culture and some lively personalities at the top make life interesting. Experts in certain practice areas are highly respected and thus the company is able to get some of the most profitable and interesting work.

      Cons

      Unfortunately, the company chases less interesting business in its less glamorous practice areas, which are headed up by ambitious experts who have neither the technical expertise nor business acumen to ever really compete with the rainmakers. Unlike in other consulting firms, very little effort is made to give consultants a wide breadth of experiences. Hence, life can be persistently unfair for juniors who are matched...

      I worked at Bates White Economic Consulting full-time for more than 2 years

      Pros

      Bates White is a fantastic place to work, and anyone who says otherwise has likely not worked anywhere else. Sure, the hours are variable and can be intense during some periods, but you are compensated and rewarded nicely for hard work, and generally your colleagues are pleasant to spend the long nights with.

      Cons

      Hours can be highly variable depending on which case you are assigned to. Job satisfaction and advancement opportunities seem correlated to the practice area you are in.
