    I have been working at Cornerstone Research full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Cornerstone offers:
    - The opportunity to work with very smart people to see how they have learned to solve problems
    - Top of the industry compensation
    - Strong brand among business schools admissions committees
    - Highly transferrable data management and analysis skills and overall impeccable attention to detail
    - Plenty of opportunity to develop other soft skills
    - A supportive and collaborative culture

    Cons

    Downsides include:
    - Case demands can be unpredictable, making it difficult at times to make non-work related commitments
    - Case managers can be a bit of a mixed bag. Sometimes the smartest people are not always the best leaders
    - The longer you remain with Cornerstone, the more specialized (and less transferrable) your skills become, limiting your exit opportunities

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Place less emphasis on hiring the very smartest and most expert managers and ensure (either through training or the hiring process) that managers have good management skills.

    Create a better-defined path for outperforming analysts to become associates to retain verified talent.
