    Pros

    Great people. Incredibly bright. Made some amazing friends

    Cons

    Would benefit from valuing support staff more

    Advice to Management

    I worked for Oliver Wyman for 6 years and they do not tolerate fools lightly. In some ways this is harsh but in others it means atet if someone has been there for more than 2 years you know that they know there stuff, whatever the discipline. My only criticism is that on the support side they tend to underpay compared to rivals and this means that they hire people too junior and hope that they will step up, which mean that some positions become revolving doors.
