Analyst (Former Employee) – United States – March 31, 2018
You get to work with great people, get excellent on the job training, and participate in significant projects. It is difficult to find a job that can match the benefits package.
However, you are either so busy that you do not have a life (70+ hours) or you have nothing to do. Unfortunately, this plays havoc on you personal life, wellness, and makes it difficult to predict compensation. I would not recommend working here for longer than the typical two years for an associate or analyst, as the skills you gain are better compensated elsewhere.

Smart colleagues and emphasis on bringing in talented staff. Company also offers training courses to provide professional development. Opportunity to take on significant responsibility and have ownership of work.
Client Relations Coordinator (Former Employee) – New York, NY – July 30, 2017
Everyday was fast-paced and included managing daily operations with regard to new projects, current projects, client and internal issues. Required to satisfy many operational needs, this position required immense patience. At times, completing a task entailed waiting on other team members before proceeding. Management allowed team members to work together to resolve potential conflicts (which rarely occurred because everyone was professional and understood his/her role on a project). The most challenging aspect of the role was aligning budget/expenses with respective monthly invoices - often due to last minute travel or inclusion of a new team member. This position deepened my budget forecasting acumen and anticipating the potential issues that arise, as well as improved my usage of Excel. Most rewarding was the ability to sustain our clients' satisfaction project after project.
Free healthy snacks, fun internal events - i.e. yoga, great benefits
Associate, Competition (Former Employee) – United States – April 7, 2017
Great place to develop a lot of good working skills, but little room for upward mobility (for Analysts/Associates). Work/life balance is what it is for consulting -- expected to work around the clock when needed but hours are very flexible when there aren't deadlines. No huge pressure to hit billed hours minimum, just directly affects your bonus. Job does come with lots of perks and there's an obvious effort to make it an enjoyable place to work (table tennis, happy hours, lunches, etc.).
Software Trainer, Tech Writer & Support Analyst (Former Employee) – Boston, MA – January 14, 2014
I loved working at CRAI. They have a great atmosphere, very deadline driven, professional. Advancement as usual in Boston is based on workload and a willingness to put the company first. CRAI has great projects to work on. Loved it here.
