Terrible politics, near impossible to “campaign” to Director or Partner
Sr Manager (Former Employee) –  New York, NYAugust 10, 2017
Good pay, long hours, terrible management, extremely political, and cutthroat. Large majority of consultants are VERY inexperienced and over priced to clients. Lack of innovation and creative thinking. If you dont fit in your gone. The campaign one must deploy for over a year to become Director or partner is near impossible and all political.
Pros
Salary
Cons
Travel, culture, politics, lack of experienced consultants

No longer People's culture
Advisory Staff (Current Employee) –  Philadelphia, PAAugust 9, 2017
All they care about is money. The people are no longer their focus. The firm is losing sight of their vision. Benefits are being reduced and raises at close to zero.

Great company culture but need to pay employees more
Risk Advisory Consultant (Current Employee) –  San Francisco, CAAugust 9, 2017
Company culture is great, and you become exposed to a variety of clients and team dynamics. Hours depend heavily on your team and whether it is busy season. Employees need to be paid more for the insane amount of hours they work. If this is implemented, there may be a higher retention rate for new employees. Overall, great way to be exposed to different industries and services and strengthen one's people skills.
Pros
Free meals, your coworkers, benefits
Cons
Hours, pay

A great place to learn
Assurance Senior (Former Employee) –  Chicago, ILAugust 8, 2017
This is a great place to start your career and has a lot of learning moments to offer, but quickly becomes your life. Hard to work here and have a social life, ok for some, but not really for everyone.

One of the Best Places to Work in Chicago for many many years
Executive Assistant (Former Employee) –  Chicago, ILAugust 3, 2017
This is a remarkable people oriented professional organization to work at. People First is not just words but true actions. They expect a certain level of work performance and give so much more back in return.

It is truly an inclusive workplace culture and that is what makes it so unique at this size. Management at all levels are approachable and are encouraged to interact -- you become comfortable with all levels, I highly recommend trying this type of position.
Pros
Lots of longer weekends in the summer months
Cons
A commute from the suburbs

Assurance Senior Manager (Current Employee) –  Los Angeles, CAJuly 31, 2017
My years from staff - manager were fun. Gets really political at senior manager level and above. If you're not a 'favorite', forget about making partner.
