    I worked at Patpatia & Associates full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    If you enjoy working in a fast-paced, intimate setting, this is a fantastic place to be. With the guidance of probably the best mentor I've had (current Senior), I was given the opportunity to work on multiple, high-profile projects that I would have only dreamed of working on at that point in my life. I can confidently say that I learned more from working here than at any other company I've worked for, and the foundation for my growth was absolutely established here.

    Cons

    This is not for the faint of heart. The reward is immeasurable, but you have to be willing to work for it. The hours can get long, but if you're okay with working hard, you will have no problem.

    Pros

    The location of the office.

    Cons

    It was hands down the worst experience of my life. I would never recommend this firm to a graduate as it's very discouraging and management does groom you, mentor, or encourage. I left this place because I needed to regain my sanity and it took me three months to feel normal again. I ended up working at top tier company in the Bay Area.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in your talent and encourage them to succeeded.

    Pros

    The office is nice and there's generally parking in the lot or nearby. The location is close to a bunch of shops.

    Cons

    Management doesn't teach you much. The analysis they do does not help clients at all. Cold calling is common here.

    Advice to Management

    Value your employees more. Put more time into developing their skills and talents. Listen to other people's opinions and not just to senior management.

    gets you experience when you have done
    You learn a lot about business quickly if you can keep up
    In Berkeley aka the best city

    Cons

    feels shady
    Your time is monitored like a hawk
    People are constantly being fired around you - you live in fear of being fired (which will happen)
    The receptionist made more money than I did as a consultant

    Value them

  8. "Small office with high rate of turn over and many interns"

    StarStarStarStarStar
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    Pros

    We get office lunch on Fridays and the kitchen is always stocked with snacks. You get your own computer to work with and coworkers are always willing to help.

    Cons

    The work given to you is very basic and you do not learn much. Constantly writing emails and calling.

    Advice to Management

    Team interns up with full time workers so they can learn more and not just do mundane work.
