Pros

* Most interesting consulting work around - nearly every project is about identifying or developing new growth for businesses (e.g., new markets, new customers, new products/services)
* Nature of consulting work leads to better work/life balance. You won't sift through enormous excel spreadsheets to create complicated pricing models... Also, travel is much less (at least in junior ranks). It varies by project, but average is probably 4 nights/month away from the office
* Enormous personal and professional opportunity based on firms stage: This firm is young and small (~40 consultants), but growing its size and profile. Everyone at the firm is able to contribute to high profile client work, to write (and get published in Forbes, Business Week, HBR, etc) - even the analysts have opportunities to write for these publications - and find opportunities for promotion

Cons

* Firm's size and age (relatively small and young) mean that there isn't as much structure and feedback as other larger firms (the McBainCGs of the world) have. If you aren't the type who is comfortable knocking on a partner's door and saying "I'd like to try X, I think it would help the firm in Y way, can we talk about how I can do it?" then you might be disappointed, and feel like the promised opportunities never materialize for you.

Advice to Management

Articulate more clearly the long-term career plans the firm has for its employees (e.g., if you want them to stay and not go to MBA, etc, lay out a path for them at the firm)

    I worked at Innosight as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    + Great client exposure — participated nearly every client meeting
    + Was given a great deal of responsibility as a summer analyst
    + Feedback mechanisms highly structured and usually very actionable
    + Fantastic culture with lots of quirky activities (e.g., pizza trucks, giant inflatable slides)
    + Honestly some of the smartest, most authentic, and cool people I've had the chance to work with

    Cons

    - Sometimes the hours get crazy, but this totally depends on the account you're working on
    - Location outside of Boston isn't totally ideal
