Pros

flexible hours, lots of client contact, good bonuses, fast promotion schedule allows analyst to move up to senior roles within a few years, Analyst form close friendships- lots of social events and networking opportunities

Cons

weekend work, develop expertise in one industry, long hours on some projects and limited flexibility on project with short deadlines, strong focus on billable hours puts pressure on analysts to work late, up to 30% of compensation comes from bonuses- this is an added stress because analysts must keep their average billable hours up to achieve max compensations

Advice to Management

too much weekend work, forces young employees to focus on to a practice group too early, very little structured training- mostly on the job training. Limited formal training hurts weaker analysts and doesn't give everyone the opportunity to progress. The firm should invest in a formal training program during the summer than allows everyone to have the same financial modeling and technical skill be the time the evaluation period starts- analysts that don't have financial modeling experience are at a strong disadvantage to analyst with other backgrounds.

    Pros

    Camaraderie among analysts is very good. There are opportunities for growth and mobility within the organization even in a short amount of time.

    Cons

    Not a lot of work-life balance at times and you are often expected to work very long hours to meet client deadlines. This is the nature of the industry, though.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to focus on growth and development of entry-level staff.
