    Pros

    There is a great culture at OW. The people here are very supportive and try to include you in as many opportunities as possible. I have felt supported in my role at Oliver Wyman, and found that my company really does try to promote a sustainable work-life-balance.

    Cons

    There aren't many downsides of working at Oliver Wyman. The company and the people are great

    Not a bad company; most people are friendly and helpful

    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Have met some great people who are willing to help you if you work hard and ask honest questions

    Cons

    It's not easy to disentagle this from the effects of COVID in general, but I haven't really been able to socialize that much with office colleagues, so I generally feel isolated. Plus, hours are relatively tough, but that's how consulting goes.

    Pros

    Collaborative, non-hierarchical culture. Great people with good mix of IQ and EQ. Constantly striving to do better and be better.

    Cons

    Work-life balance can be tough, though at least it's something leadership cares about and is working to improve

    Great people, great professional development and down to earth & friendly. Must be willing to travel.

    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Great people to work with - super smart, yet down to earth and friendly. Great opportunities for professional development, it's a complete meritocracy and you are given as much responsibility as you can handle from a very early stage. Good opportunities to travel if you want to as well.

    Cons

    As with any consultancy the hours can be somewhat unpredictable and long at times. If you don't like to travel it can be difficult getting used to being away from home three nights a week for long stretches.
