More Pros and Cons
  1. "Look elsewhere"

    StarStarStarStarStar
    Former Employee - Analyst 

    I worked at Analysis Group full-time

    Pros

    The people you work with are genuinely nice, thoughtful, and kind. A few cases, especially high-profile cases, involve interesting research and data work. Your schedule is sometimes pretty flexible and the perks are solid. People often leave for great grad schools.

    Cons

    Most of the work is either monotonous, detrimental to society, or both. You might find yourself defending people who have defrauded investors or sold mortgage backed securities. Worse, the work you do to build an expert report is extremely tedious and involves hours of manual footnote-checking. AG sells this job as one that involves working with a lot of data, but this is not a great place to develop your skillset if you're interested in a quantitative career- in fact, this job will probably be a detriment. Analysts feel replaceable because everyone's expected to leave in 2-3 years. The internal labor market, as many others have noted, is broken - you'll be assigned a case in one area and struggle to ever leave that area.

    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.

    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

    No Opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Analysis Group full-time for more than a year

    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.
