    Pros

    You get the opportunity to work with very smart and hard working consulting analysts

    Cons

    Where to start... #1) The harder you work and the better you are the more work you get piled onto your plate so you can't learn anything that will benefit you. #2) The people who watch youtube, play video games, sleep, take 3 hour lunches, arrive at 8:30 and leave at 4:30, everyday are the ones who get less work. #3) everyone got the max raise and max bonus in 2012 given #1 & #2.

    Advice to Management

    Establish a form of management. Treat employees as they are valued. Only employees that stay are the ones who do nothing.

    Pros

    Small office environment, awesome office location almost on the beach, lots of great people, albeit some junior staff are underpaid. you can stand out if you work hard AND brown nose the right people, private equity funds business is a cash cow, basically runs itself and investors are locked up for 10 years, very relaxed day to day work environment, 8-5 job.

    Cons

    Nature of their work does not really foster ambition and development aspirations, as work is fairly low in complexity, decisions are made over the course of quarters. in this sense, hard to advance since good opportunities to take charge are rare. Not the most innovative business model (anymore) and the firm is not aggressive in developing new business opportunities. management does a poor job communicating and providing leadership, guidance and tutelage, operations management lacks motivation, lots of people just coming in for their daily grind and going home. definitely do not recommend working here if you have less than 5 years experience since you will be paid very little with few options to advance.

    Advice to Management

    It's a stable, steady business that employees stable, steady people. Communicate better with employees, especially new hires so they know what exactly what they're getting into. Be honest with yourselves first about what this company is and does, then be honest to the applicants about their career prospects there.
