    Pros

    Constantly challenging and exciting work; exceptional colleagues; great exposure earlier in your career

    Cons

    Workload can be variable and unpredictable at times based on client demands, but is more manageable than typical Big 4

    Advice to Management

    Hard to find criticism, as this was a phenomenal place to start a career. In an effort to manage turnover, it may be helpful to focus on understanding employees’ career interests before they look elsewhere.

    Global nature of company means you get to interact with some very interesting colleagues from around the world.

    Major clients, high-profile policy areas,

    Work/life balance is a challenge - pressure can be intense.

    Very corporate - increasingly less individualism.

    Pros

    Office staff is very friendly

    Cons

    The Chicago office has the worst culture I have ever experienced. Senior Management is so quick to make assumptions, micro manage, and have no boundaries.

    Advice to Management

    Trust your employees, allow work life balance, even allow work from home every once and a while.
