I worked at Booz & Company as an intern (Less than a year)

Pros

Good camaraderie among dedicated professionals who are bright and talented.

Cons

Very, very rigid culture which requires you to stay within a particular type of style and approach - this applies to thought process, design of models and presentations

Advice to Management

Please allow some creativity to flow through the organization by minimizing the need to follow a set approach. You are gifted with being able to start again as a new company born out of a legacy one. Make sure the entrepreneurial spirit is nurtured not trampled.

    I have been working at Booz & Company full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great people at the firm, some of the best I have worked with. True leaders can be found at Booz & Company, though unfortunately, very few at the management level. Booz is also a great place to learn and grow.

    Cons

    Do not promote based on merit, despite what is advertised. Also, have denied full-time employment to interns based on visa issues which interns were not notified of before agreeing to summer internships.

    Advice to Management

    Please start to reward your employees based on merit (both for promotions and bonuses). They deserve it. Additionally, do not offer internships unless interns can be offered full-time positions, or notify interns of any restrictions beforehand.
