    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Oliver Wyman full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great networking and cultural enforcement activities (e.g. happy hour every Friday, offsites for various practice areas) Rapid promotion provides strong incentive to perform

    Cons

    Outside of risk management, content gets a bit thin as most partners lack the appropriate background Going into unchartered waters due to focus on relationship based selling versus thought leadership Hours can be long though that comes with the territory. In line with most management consulting firms when it comes to workload.

    Advice to Management

    Slow and steady wins the game while retaining a strong perspective on quality

    I worked at Oliver Wyman full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Incredibly stimulating environment - truly smart people

    Cons

    Truly nerd colleagues. Work is very very number heavy, little strategic thinking is expected.

    Advice to Management

    Live your mission and brand, stop aspiring to be / competing with McKinsey / BCG / Bain: OW is great, and is in a different type of game

    I have been working at Oliver Wyman full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Good salary and benefits package, good variety of projects. Very strong client base, especially in Financial Services. Academically excellent consultants with deepening sector knowledge as they progress through the ladder.

    Cons

    Not much fun. Driven by individuals, not teams. Very specific in the approach to consulting, would not recommend for experienced hires unless you have a strong quantitative/ modelling background. Very little interaction outside formally organized events.

    Advice to Management

    Move away from command & control to more collaborative way of working at all levels. Improve working relationships between offices, practices and other companies within MMC.

    Pros

    Great environment: smart people facing complex business issues Very professional and rigorous approach to problem solving High level public issues to work on

    Cons

    Very, very technical approach, from junior consultants to senior partner roles Limited credibility and brand recognition as strategy / management consultancy house (recognized for modelling / analytical capabilities) Need to have a very specific profile to fit in (heavily number oriented, focused on details)
