    Positive Outlook
    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    - Smart people
    - Company truly cares about you
    - Entrepreneurial environment so you can truly contribute to the firm's growth, no matter what level you come in at
    - Focus on creating a strong work-life balance (invite people's families or significant others to social events)
    - Interesting and challenging work with interesting clients
    - Great client exposure and experience- you are always given a seat at the table and your opinion is truly valued
    - Amazing development opportunities and world-class training
    - Very international so will frequently work with colleagues and clients from other countries

    Cons

    - As the US is a newer office, they are working on building out the management team and ironing out some kinks
    - HR team is stretched (again, they are building out this team) so there could have been some better support with regards to on-boarding

    Advice to Management

    - If growing, hiring should more than cover attrition

    I worked at Roland Berger (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great supervisor, was exposed to the projects they worked on and asked for my own thoughts, even as an intern

    Cons

    Not much room to move up as an intern. Ended up doing a lot of translation work.

    Advice to Management

    Give interns some more tasks. They're more capable than you think.
