    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at EY-Parthenon full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    - Good mix of sectors, especially ones that other strat houses don't have, e.g. like Education - Strategy consulting ONLY, rather than implementation - unlike some of the MBBs - Shorter projects, meaning you get more reps faster - Fast growth - lots of opportunities for fast promotion - Extremely positive culture, very flat and focused on having fun together (there is a reason why we look for "smart, NICE, and driven" people

    Cons

    - Still 50% focus on commercial due diligence (DD) work which is a lot more intense - Still figuring out bet op model after the period of fast growth in the past 5 years
