    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.

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