    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.

    Neutral Outlook
    No Opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Analysis Group full-time for more than 5 years

    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.
