    I worked at Monitor Group full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Terrific colleagues, interesting work, international opportunities. The founders vision about the power of ideas and "asset based consulting" was exciting, but 10+ years ahead of it time. (McKinsey is doing this today.)

    The inevitable ups and downs of consulting; Bad capital structure, poor comp, we went bankrupt

    I worked at Monitor Group full-time

    Pros

    The firm was full of really smart and caring people who worked hard for clients and had fun while doing it.

    Cons

    The firm wasn't run well. Too many senior people weren't accountable for growing the firm. People served clients well, but there simply wasn't enough money to support the cost structure of the offices and senior personnel
