      Great people but no inclination to stay long term

      Jan 8, 2021 - Consultant

      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      - Great people, like some reviews have already mentioned - Cool projects (dependent on staffing / who you know) - Pre-COVID experience was great

      Cons

      - The firm has recently taken action to try and better WLB during COVID-19, but it still doesn't feel sustainable - Basically all of the perks of this job have gone away - Seeing my managers work even more hours than is a bit disheartening, seems like a dark loop that keeps funneling downwards - The firm all in all hasn't done a great job at prioritizing work / goals with clients. Seems like there is a never ending stream of work we say yes to, yet some of it doesn't seem important / practical especially given team sizes and resources

      Overall a great Company

      Pros

      Oliver Wyman has proven to be a great company with great people with in the company who support you along the way. There are added benefits of working from home, flexible work hours, opportunities for growth.

      Cons

      The pros are mostly limited to the bigger offices - Europe, NYC, Chicago. There are few areas to advance in any of the smaller offices and little understanding of the cities dynamics due to remote management, so things become black and white rather than understanding and grace.
