    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    Easy to start out from college - you will be in similar company with many other analysts. Good first professional experience, and lots of different career opportunities throughout the company.

    Cons

    Because it's a big company, you can end up just being another number unless you connect with people you really like working with. It's really up to you to actively engage in defining your career, and lots of people just have bad luck and get in bad situations (bad boss or project or work/life balance).

    Advice to Management

    Promotions and reviews seem to depend more on timing and luck than actual employee competence.


  2. "a solid place to begin my career"

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    good place to learn, be challenged and serve as a stepping stone (assuming you want to go elsewhere). also a good place to stay assuming you are hitting you promotion points

    Cons

    the firm is very large and that means that you can have great opportunities but also get lost in the cracks if you don't have the right capabilities or get the right support

    Advice to Management

    rewards your people more at the behest of the stockholders - the pay isn't bad but it is not up to standard compared with other consulting firms
