  7. "Worth it"

    Pros

    Exceptionally diverse industry exposure compared to peer firms. Truly wonderful people. Parthenon takes the "Nice" in "Smart. Nice. Driven." very seriously. The firm invests a lot in mentorship. You will feel challenged here.

    Cons

    Brutal hours. Double staffing (two projects at a time) is the default. Unreasonable expectations, and having to compromise on work quality, both take a toll on morale. Little to no client exposure for most projects.

    Advice to Management

    Sell only as much work as you can staff reasonably. As Parthenon scales, invest in full-time staff for recruiting, D&I, and other internal initiatives like our larger peer firms do.

    I worked at Parthenon - EY (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    - Learning and professional development
    - Interesting work with great responsibility at early stage
    - Salary package
    - Excellent travel opportunities

    Cons

    - Work/life balance. None at all
    - Not the most supportive environment . Bias towards a very specific personality type
    - No clear set of responsibilities, which means work is just transferred downwards to the associate

    Advice to Management

    - Dictate a clear set of JDs and enforce it
    - Enforce work life balance by setting longer cases and sacrificing a bit of revenue to reduce attrition
    - Diversify the type of people recruited
    - Enforce a supportive environment for women to work in, and rules against sexist comments and behaviour
