    Pros

    flexibility when it comes to wanting to pursue your own projects, open minded in this regard too.

    Cons

    German, Swiss and other offices are very strict in terms of upward growth; analysts will never be consultants and if you don't have an MBA, PhD or went to an Ivy you're basically stuck being an analyst. Partners and consultants do the fun stuff and there is little room to move in if you're looking for entry level.

    Advice to Management

    get rid of old school notions of seniority and strict hierarchies

    Pros

    This company really values the individual as well as collaborative teams. They provide opportunities above and beyond other management consulting firms to make sure you're developing and achieving your potential. Very impressed with the caliber of the people here and the spirit and values of the firm.

    Cons

    Just the usual cons of a partnership model meritocracy that is very flat and encourages autonomy over hierarchy, it really depends on the individual to drive the development of their career. We could also be better of "managing out" low performers more quickly.
