      Outstanding firm if you are looking to enter strategy consulting

      Pros

      Amazing culture and life experience. Continuous training and climbing the promotion ladder. The company strongly promotes a positive work environment. Smartest and nicest people I have worked with who are always there to help. As a strategy consultant you are looking for three things - Interesting projects, creating real life impact, and engagement with the C-suite. You will get to experience all three here on a regular basis. Company talks a lot about valuing the entrepreneurial spirit of employees and they actually mean it. You get to participate in business development and overall strategic direction of the firm from very early on.

      Cons

      None I can think about except for typical consulting stuff such as travelling and long hours time to time.

      Only worthwhile if you're interested in Pricing

      Jul 21, 2020 - Consultant in San Francisco, CA
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Will develop a strong background in pricing strategy. Good opportunities to do a 6 month rotation program outside of the US. You do get a good amount of smart individuals coming from different backgrounds. Opportunities to take on more senior responsibilities earlier on in your career.

      Cons

      Salary well below market. Poor management leading to unnecessarily long hours and and extra work. You will work only on pricing projects so your expertise will be limited if you're trying to recruit for a role outside of pricing. Poor review cycle structure - one team member has the ability to tank your reviews.
