    I have been working at Oliver Wyman full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Diverse and interesting staff, career advancement for some, plenty of opportunities to get involved and engaged. Can be fun and fulfilling at times

    Cons

    Highly politicized and divisive culture despite years of trying to create a unified internal identity as a desirable place to start and maintain a support staff career. For some, mostly on the consulting side, it can be a dream opportunity, but for support staff, its a case of the prisoners standing behind the barbed wire watching the parade of all that fine internal cultural growth and development pass them by. Double-standards abound. Lot's of fine words and time expended on improving the culture, but in practice, just not working. Severe lack of respect for support staff.

    Advice to Management

    Wake up and pay attention. You've got some real issues to deal with.
