    Current Employee, more than 3 years

    Good pay and diversity of work, but burnout is real

    Apr 5, 2022 - Anonymous Employee 
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    The experience and opportunities for growth are good, the benefits (high # vacation days, medical, office food) are great, and the variety of clients and mandates are solid. Colleagues are very smart and hard working, and more often than not everyone gives one another the benefit of the doubt in crunch times or when making mistakes. The flexibility on a day to day and weekly basis is also great- I can make a doctor appt during the day and know my team will cover me and be fine with it. Now, we can also work from home 40-50% of the time. Also, the relationships I’ve built over my years with the company are highly valuable, and client exposure is high. You learn a LOT working at Brunswick.

    Cons

    Akin to all consulting organizations, the work hours are tough at times, and often inconsistent. The fact that I worry about scheduling a weekly workout class from 6:30-8:30 once a week is not great… The culture is solid, but there is a underlying rule that you should work hard and “live and breathe” your clients. It is exhausting to work in an environment where 80% of your colleagues are 100% focused on their job and their career, meaning if you don’t do the same, you slowly begin to fall behind. Some colleagues are incredibly supportive and actually act like they are, while others say they are but do nothing to support you. You’re given responsibilities above your level which is great, but often given little support to execute tasks you aren’t familiar with, and it often feels inappropriate to ask for help or admit you need guidance, even when you’re early in your career.

    Pros

    Great salary, smart coworkers, interesting clients

    Cons

    Not sure if they are making the world a better or a worse place. Calling your self a DEI or ESG expert doesn’t mean you’re helping, you’re just helping companies have the right narrative. My team didn’t have a single POC! And yet they are writing diversity plans for their clients. Meh. Very meh.
