    I worked at Booz & Company full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Incredibly talented, down-to-earth and fun group of people that you get to share many hours, solving complex problems with. It's people make Booz an amazing consulting suite to work at. Leadership does truly care to make their consultants' lives better by listening to them and trying to work on improving various areas of the consultant life.

    Cons

    Lacked sufficient scale to enable leadership to truly focus on charting its own path. The standard challenges of the industry of balancing work/life, getting on nightmare projects (travel, client, scope, etc.) are present, albeit it's a topic that leadership tries to mitigate, but the industry and its pressures are what they are.
