    Try and keep the key cultural elements alive while getting scale out of the PwC merger

    I worked at Booz & Company full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    learn about management consulting, good culture with friendly people

    Cons

    depending on the team, work-life balance is sometimes off. but then again, that's generally true of all consulting firms.

    Advice to Management

    Take care of the brand. Strategy& is not as compelling as Booz&Co, which benefited a lot from the Booz Allen name.

    Working along-side of highly driven, reliable and extremely smart people on challenging business problems in a well-structured, respectful and merit-based environment.

    Pros

    Interesting clients and projects. Smart project team members. Challenging in a good way. Is a great way to set up long term career in terms of compensation and interesting job opportunities.

    Cons

    Work / life balance is very challenging. As much as seniors want to put programs in place to better this, it remains challenging. The projects are demanding and require more than standard industry hours.

    Advice to Management

    Actively listen to feedback from juniors

    I have been working at Booz & Company as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Laid back. Everyone works well together. Upper management seems to be stressed all the time. Non-client facing staff seems to be happier.

    Cons

    I am a little impatient but I feel as if my talents are not being put to good use. I have an accounting degree and they have me processing basic work. I have spoken but it seems like my enthusiasm is worth nothing.

    Advice to Management

    Ask employees what they want to do. Ask them how they would like to advance.
