    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee 

    I worked at Analysis Group full-time

    Pros

    - Good compensation - Smart colleagues - Challenging work

    Cons

    - Senior stakeholders do not want to provide feedback - Don't care about employees only finishing tasks quickly - Absolutely no work life balance - Little racial diversity and non-inclusive environment. questions are received with suspicion, held to a higher performance standard than peers, initiative is seen as over-stepping -The company is constantly hiring as employees work here for a while and prefer to leave. - Would only recommend to people who are willing to trade their 20's for cash

    I worked at Analysis Group full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Very efficient management and HR.

    Cons

    Poor work life balance with slow career development. Compensation is good, but nothing great. Staff is unfriendly, everyone seems stressed all the time. Did not learn anything of substance. Few to none opportunities to network. Leave while you can - it's simply not worth it.

  3. "Rewarding experience for new grads"

    I have been working at Analysis Group full-time

    Pros

    Extremely intelligent and motivated colleagues, who are also friendly and nice. Everyone genuinely wants to help you learn and develop your skills. The Boston office has an annual ski trip to Stowe and an awesome holiday party at the MFA. I’ve heard from colleagues in other offices that they have similar events as well (San Francisco goes to Tahoe to ski). The Boston office space is beautiful, and every analyst gets their own office. The training here is also top notch, with analysts having mandatory training sessions in Excel, SAS, Stata, R, VBA, and lots of optional courses as well if you want to focus on a particular programming language. This could be a pro or a con, but compared to management consulting there is very little travel. Work life balance in consulting can be difficult, but not traveling makes it easier for me. As far as exit opportunities, most analysts leave to go to top grad schools, and AG helps prepare you with an extensive grad school workshop series.

    Cons

    Consulting can have long and unpredictable hours, and economic consulting adds the additional layer of non-negotiable court deadlines. I’ve definitely had some late nights working with my team. AG has an internal labor market, which is essentially how you find your cases. Some people love it because it allows them to network their way into the cases they want, but I would personally appreciate a little more structure and help finding cases.

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

    Pros

    Given immediate legitimate and interesting responsibilities / tasks. The work varied a lot and every case felt like a new learning opportunity. Plenty of opportunity to advance to higher level responsibilities. Management was incredibly receptive to feedback and openly encouraged push-back on their ideas. Perfect job to work for a few years after undergrad, particularly if interested in graduate school afterwards.

    Cons

    This is just the nature of the industry but hours can be unpredictable and long. However, most of the management in the DC office is good about keeping work-life balance in check for the analysts.

    Pros

    Work life balance. Unlike consultants at the firm. IT is not expected to work crazy work hours. Once you are done with your shift you are not expected to answer anything. Pay and bonuses are very good.

    Cons

    No growth within the company. The turn over in systems is crazy and management does not see this as an issue. They prompt to meaningless titles and constantly claim there is opportunities for growth, however you will end up doing the same thing. Instead of growing within they rather hire externally. For a large firm, policies and procedures are not written and go by a strictly "if they complain enough we will do it". There are two people who basically run systems so your opinion never matters. Terrible IT practices that amateurs would never even do. If you are OK with high pay and customer service this is for you. If you care for your personal development move on.

    Pros

    Opportunities to develop data analytics skills, friendly and respectful colleagues, generally well-managed company

    Cons

    Seniority-based promotion leaving little room for growth; analysts are expected to attend grad school/leave for other jobs after 2 years. Work/life balance can be horrible at times ahead of case deadlines.
