    I have been working at Roland Berger full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    - Great team throughout the US with smart people at all levels of the organization that are able to deliver high quality work while making it a fun experience for each project team - Highly diverse team in each office (e.g. 3 continents, 8 nationalities represented in the Boston office alone). This contributes to bringing a broad range of perspectives to the client and is an endless source of learning for team members....

    Cons

    - Hours can be long like in any top tier consulting firm - Small size of the office means that there is often more limited choice in project assignment compared to larger offices (in Europe for example)

    Advice to Management

    - Keep up the good work of actively seeking, listening to and incorporating the feedback of employees (at all levels) in the firm's development - very proud of our recent wellness initiative! - We need to continue to recognize that our employees come from very different backgrounds and experiences and that we make sure that this is taken into account in communication and identification of training priorities

If you did write this we ask you to take immediate steps to remove this immediately. I would like to take this time to remind you of the obligations with specific reference to section 5 which states the following: (I will skip the legal details). We...

    I have been working at Roland Berger full-time

    Pros

    Roland Berger in the US is a relatively young and dynamic business which is experiencing fast growth in its focus areas (the business is more focused on specific industry sectors in the US than it is globally), increasingly taking share from more established large global US-based consultancies. The firm benefits from retaining a boutique feel thanks to its relatively small local size while benefiting from the scale and...

    Hours can be long due to the fast growth of the company. The partners are working on addressing this The brand is not as strong as in Europe but growing in focus industry areas following large wins in the last couple of years and as a result of influential publications.

    Advice to Management

    Keep growing the business - it's exciting - but maintain the focus on work-life balance !
