    I worked at Booz & Company full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Because resources are so limited, you learn to do a lot yourself, making you more efficient when you leave for a full-service firm with greater support resources

    Cons

    Toxic culture fueled by downward spiral in sales performance and large inferiority complex; employees constantly moaning about the gap between Booz and MBB
    Dishonest leadership team that masked issues
    Rattling lay-offs of large group of new undergraduate intake (~40% of undergrad hires just 6 mos into their careers were fired)

    Advice to Management

    Be humble; PwC might not have a great brand, but they've grown a large organization and I presume foster a better culture. Learn from them.

    I have been working at Booz & Company full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Challenging work, good set of colleagues at times and travel perks

    Cons

    Old Boys Club culture
    Business is very unstable
    Little regard for people and their needs - this is not a place to have a long term career
    Short sighted and incredibly arrogant leadership
    Did I say terrible culture?

    Advice to Management

    Put your ego aside and try to be a decent firm. Treat your employees like human beings and stop pretending you're anywhere as close to MBB as you think

    I have been working at Booz & Company full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great people at the firm, some of the best I have worked with. True leaders can be found at Booz & Company, though unfortunately, very few at the management level. Booz is also a great place to learn and grow.

    Cons

    Do not promote based on merit, despite what is advertised. Also, have denied full-time employment to interns based on visa issues which interns were not notified of before agreeing to summer internships.

    Advice to Management

    Please start to reward your employees based on merit (both for promotions and bonuses). They deserve it. Additionally, do not offer internships unless interns can be offered full-time positions, or notify interns of any restrictions beforehand.
