    Pros

    Diverse and generally very interesting mix of clients and projects (particularly for a boutique firm) The partners are all good people, talented in unique and complementary ways, and care deeply about the firm Very smart, fun, and interesting people; supportive/collaborative culture, no jerks Managers/Partners have high standards, and ensure a top-notch work product--which can be tough at times, but makes for...

    Cons

    High-stress job, and work/life balance can be tough and uneven (this comes with the territory in consulting, but Clarion's double-staffing model and overall high standards can exacerbate it) Associates/Consultants often don't have much input into which projects they're staffed on; you really have to advocate for yourself, and even then it's no slam dunk Sometimes can have the feel of a much larger company (e.g.,...

    I worked at Clarion | A Life Sciences Consultancy

    Pros

    You are constantly learning and doing work alongside very bright people. Everyone is friendly too. The best part is if there is a skill you want to learn, or a project you want to be on, the management will try to accommodate when possible. Hours are very reasonable compared to other consulting firms.

    Cons

    Hard to pinpoint. It would be nice if Clarion had another location, but I don't think the company is big enough for that

    Advice to Management

    Continue keeping the work-life balance. It's amazing and a real point of differentiation I think.
