    Pros

    The work is really interesting and you get to work with really smart people and learn a lot.

    Cons

    The hours can be spikey - no worse (in fact, maybe better) than other consulting firms but definitely not a 9-5 job.

    Advice to Management

    Don't lose what's good about the firm as it gets bigger.

    Pros

    Great company culture - very supportive of your personal goals and finding ways to help you reach them. Interesting work and a great way to learn and improve technical skills in a fast-paced but friendly environment.

    Cons

    Hours can be fluid - which can allow flexibility but also requires some last-minute late night and weekend work. Being a team player and making yourself available for these instances is valued highly and probably required for long-term success at the company.

    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at The Brattle Group full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Benefits are good. Generally project have a challenging aspect to them. Working with people who like academic thinking creates learning opportunities.

    Cons

    Culture can be cliquey and gossipy which can be tricky to navigate but works in some people's favor. While the mantra is they want to develop people, Brattle isn't more successful than other firms--most principals were lateral hires at some point.

    Advice to Management

    The firm needs to work on diversity at higher levels.
