Good culture but experience is subjective to your MDs
Senior Associate (Current Employee) – New York, NY – March 17, 2016
Good culture in enjoying what you do and working with people you enjoy. Instances of good work life balance but depends on the project lead. Often feels like a start-up. Good in terms of perks - fully stocked kitchen, gym, masseuse, happy hours now and then.
Mid-level management seems to get no training which can be difficult to work with. Also, employees can get put on projects completely irrelevant to what they were hired for just to be chargeable which can get frustrating when it drags on and you dislike the project. You must be able to work with several different types of employees and management across a wide variety of subjects. This can keep things interesting if you enjoy the projects but can be detrimental if you do not. Heavily project oriented so highs and lows of utilization which is the basis of the compensation structure but out of the control of junior staff. Required to work overtime with no real compensation.
