I worked at Dean & Company full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

-Very high quality consulting projects. Projects range across a broad spectrum: M&A deal support, CRM strategy, competitive strategy and financial planning and analysis. Good exposure to a number of industries. Private equity relationships are valued very highly in the industry.
-Great place to build consulting and business skills: Senior client interaction is very common. Projects are very analytical in nature. In addition to consulting projects, Dean also offers a number of business development opportunities.
-Opportunity to work with very smart people. Recruitment is very selective and the consulting folks who I interacted with throughout my duration were very bright.
-Compensation is good
-As one becomes tenured, company is very flexible in accommodating requests to improve work-life balance

Cons

-Unpredictable hours
-Limited alumni network
-Sometimes cases can be long with limited opportunities to diversify experience

Advice to Management

Invest in business development and leadership training for the mid-level consultants.
