Pros

Challenging work environment where you're surrounded by smart, motivated people and working on issues that are redefining companies and industries. As a research analyst, you get to see how different companies are facing similar challenges. You get a unique perspective on the industry.

Cons

The company has an always-on, type-A culture. The line between work and life is blurred because for many of your colleagues, they are one and the same thing.

    Pros

    Amazingly smart, capable co-workers
    Intense focus on delivering results
    Culture of cooperation and helping each other succeed
    Opportunity to gain experience very quickly in many areas

    Cons

    Real focus of the firm is on building relationships with clients and selling more projects
    Most projects are on very un-inspiring problems like setting prices or managing call centers
    Generally don't feel like you're making the world a better place, and sometimes are finding profitable ways to make it worse

    Advice to Management

    Drive for expansion and growth has led to taking on more and more projects, and developing relationships with more and more clients. This means less ability to pick and choose the opportunities where the firm can make an important contribution. Consider more focus, and less growth
