  2. "Good first job out of college"

    Former Employee - Analyst 

    I worked at Chatham Partners full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Quick learning curve and you develop a lot of excel and powerpoint skills. If you show you're capable, you can be interacting directly with clients which is very cool for someone straight out of school. Great work life balance and flexibility with PTO. Everyone is young so that's always nice.

    Cons

    Can be slow at times. Not that much room for growth after a few years.

    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Chatham Partners full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Easy work with good training to start, good benefits (as it does look into 401(k)s), eventual promotions are relatively easy to obtain

    Cons

    Rigid corporate structure leads to promotion only based on seniority and availability rather than actually good work. Also, since it's a survey-based company, the lower response rates were getting to be a problem.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Chatham Partners full-time

    Pros

    Can build solid excel skills if you put in the effort. Accommodating of remote work and vacation requests.

    Cons

    Management doesn't mentor the younger staff. Processes are too streamlined. Learning pretty much stops after the first year. Culture is pretty weak due to the tall cubicle walls and location in Waltham. Limited client visibility for employees, and limited opportunities to present findings.

    I worked at Chatham Partners part-time

    Pros

    Chatham is a great environment to work in. The employees are a young close knit group that always help everyone out. It is a fantastic place to start your career after college. They encourage employee's to bond with day-long adventures outside of the office a few times a year.

    Cons

    The jobs can sometimes be limited to the work you do.

    I worked at Chatham Partners

    Pros

    Smart people working at the company
