    Good entry job

    Aug 1, 2022 - Analyst in White Plains, NY

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Projects are generally varied and high stakes which makes them relatively interesting. Working environment is quite collegial. If you perform well, you will be given many opportunities to grow and pick up new skills. Wide variety of benefits and good selection of healthcare options.

    Cons

    If you mess up early, you may end up "stuck" with doing relatively menial tasks and miss out on opportunities for growth. Work-life balance is very unstable: it is usually okay when starting out but can escalate to working nights and weekends when trying to meet deadlines, fulfilling last minute ad-hoc requests from clients, or if your team is understaffed. Depending on the specific group, base pay is potentially not so competitive conditional on your responsibilities.

    Pros

    - Good academic exit opps (i.e., Law School, B-School, Econ PhD, CS masters). - Consistent promotion schedule. - Managerial experience in years 2+. - Good pay, great technical skill development

    Cons

    - Average non-academic exit opps. - Limited upwards mobility for juniors (non-PhDs). - Highly variable by practice (e.g., AT, Securities, IP). For example, hours, bonus, stress, culture, interesting cases, all depend on the group. If you are interviewing, asking about the group you'd be joining is vital. - Poor IT

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    NERA has a very collaborative and collegial work environment and allows analysts to work closely with senior economists. Great training for new hires and opportunities to improve technical skills and work on interesting and challenging projects. Hard work is valued and appreciated by senior staff. Good compensation.

    Cons

    Work-life balance can depend on the project and hours can be long and unpredictable at times. There are limited opportunities for long-term growth within the company for employees who only have a Bachelor's degree.

    NERA was a wonderful way to start my career out of college. I got practice in a wide range of skills from data analysis to client management. I think I improved a lot as a writer and also got exposure to a variety of industries.
