I have been working at The Brattle Group full-time

Pros

Working with really smart people with lots of knowledge and experience.
Good benefits and a collegial environment.

Cons

The emphasis is clearly to hire outside rainmakers rather than to promote current senior consultants. There is an increasing focus on the few at the top at the expense of other consulting staff.

Advice to Management

Slow down hiring at the top and focus on hiring good associates.

    Pros

    High profile projects and analysts have opportunities early on to contribute to projects

    Cons

    Lack of prestige and name value limit fly out options. Your compensation and opportunities are dependent on who you work with.

    Advice to Management

    More cohesion among principals would create a more organized and consistent work environment. Place emphasis on the right incentives for employees.

    Pros

    The Brattle Group treats its employees well with not only competitive compensation and benefits packages but hosts weekly office parties and occasional office-wide outings. Brattle is a believer in the work hard, play hard attitude.

    Cons

    Work-life balance can be thrown off when there are larger projects to tackle. It is expected that work comes first when deadlines are approaching and that late hours and some weekend work is commonplace.

    Advice to Management

    Many principles make for slow management decisions and sometimes lack of direction.
