    I have been working at Analysis Group full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Great snacks. Great benefits, especially health care coverage. Smart people.

    Cons

    As noted in prior reviews, managers can get away with bad behavior and nothing is done about it. You will lose a ton of good people if you do not have accountability for bad management. It is short sighted to keep one bad manager around and lose numerous lower level people. Abusive behavior should not be tolerated, and even rewarded, the way it currently is.

    Pros

    Interesting casework and some nice, smart people

    Cons

    AG claims that it invests a lot in its employees. There are many formalities in place, such as the formal review system, the advising system, various training sessions, etc. However, when it comes to promotion or compensation decisions, the process is often opaque and biased towards people who are better supported/advocated by the senior management. Great work is not always acknowledged, and sometimes people develop implicit (and often inaccurate or completely wrong) assumptions based only on what they see, not what has actually happened in their day-to-day casework.

    I worked at Analysis Group full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Culture is great although I only know about the LA and CHI offices. Work hard play hard, good perks, you can earn a flexible schedule. Hours are demanding but the bonus structure encourages/rewards long hours so if you're a go getter you can make great money right out of school. Learning environment is amazing - really smart people at all levels. Teaches you really valuable technical and written skills that will help you succeed anywhere. Teaches you how to audit others's work and instills a "have to get it right" attitude.

    Cons

    Your hours/work/etc is basically in the hands of lawyers or expert witnesses. Not a ton of room for super creative thinking. Can be very annoying at times but definitely teaches you about how the consulting world works.

    Pros

    There are a lot of smart people and good variety of case work.

    Cons

    It's easy to get stuck with cases that drag on for years and frequently require grueling hours. Also, it's easy to end up with a lack of variety of case work. There is a strong culture of nepotism at the firm which I found discouraging.

    "Not the same as it used to be"

    StarStarStarStarStar
     

    I worked at Analysis Group

    Pros

    Analysis Group deserves its top shelf reputation. It has smart people who work hard. It used to go a great job in investing in its staff.

    Cons

    Your experience can depend a lot on who you work with, and management decisions can seem capricious.
