    Pros

    Exceptionally diverse industry exposure compared to peer firms. Truly wonderful people. Parthenon takes the "Nice" in "Smart. Nice. Driven." very seriously. The firm invests a lot in mentorship. You will feel challenged here.

    Cons

    Brutal hours. Double staffing (two projects at a time) is the default. Unreasonable expectations, and having to compromise on work quality, both take a toll on morale. Little to no client exposure for most projects.

    Advice to Management

    Sell only as much work as you can staff reasonably. As Parthenon scales, invest in full-time staff for recruiting, D&I, and other internal initiatives like our larger peer firms do.

    Pros

    Parthenon was a great experience. I had the opportunity to work with incredibly smart people who were engaged in the work they were doing, and generous with their time as new employees learned the ropes. Parthenon taught me skills that have been extremely useful in subsequent roles.
