What you learned
There are many things in life that happens for a reason. It is important to enjoy what you are doing and yet give back to the society in the best way possible. Life will be tough and there will be challenges faced every now and then but if you maintain the right attitude and remain positive, you will be able to overcome all hurdles.
Didn't care about personal needs if a deal would get in the way
Didn't care about personal needs if a deal would get in the way. Cared more about putting in hours to bill for deal than the efficiency of the work or where and how the work was done.
The overall skillet of the employees was amazing and the end product was very good, but thought we were told to work hard instead of smart.
They also wouldn't let me leave at Midnight one night in the dead of winter to let my wife in the house as she had locked herself out. I was going to return to work right afterwards, but they couldn't spare the 30 minute absence.
Points positifsHighly intelligent people
Points négatifsNot employee focused

Decent workplace contingent on patronage
In the consulting practice, especially on the transactions side, hours are long and travel is heavy. Advancement is almost entirely predicated upon finding the right senior sponsor to facilitate your promotions. If you can find that, you will be well positioned to succeed
Points positifsTravel points
Was a diverse work place. Enjoyed most of my engagements.
I traveled weekly from Monday thru Thursday. Workdays were 10 to 12 hours a day. Most of the people I worked were smart and energetic. Management delivered one message but most of the engagement managers did not follow them in regards to billable hours.

Global company with many educational opportunities
Global company with many opportunities to grow, numerous training courses and excellent company for new consultants. Can have extensive hours expected to work.
Points positifsGlobal company, many areas for education
Points négatifsCan be very fast paced
Great organization for new professionals
Experience hires do not fit well into the organization advancement model. It is a great place to work once to assimilate into the culture. Benefits and work/life balance are excellent for new parents and those caring for others.
Great learning and great people; tough long-term work culture (no lifestyle balance)
12 hour days
poor management team
learned a lot about diligence
hardest part was the hours and the volume of work
diligence memos, phone calls with clients and excel allllll day
The partners and sr directors are very helpful and work with all levels. The associates and sr associates ahem full support of their managers and directors.
Great place to build career
Good accommodating culture. All depends on your relationship with Managing Directors and partners. Gentler of the big four.
Great place to work at, good required exposure to the industry and positive experience to work with peers and senior management.
