    I have been working at Roland Berger (More than a year)

    Pros

    Chance work with some really smart consultants and senior managers

    Some really good partners that listen to consultants and act on feedback such as industry preferences, internal transfers, working abroad etc and also provide good mentorship to junior consultants

    MBA Sponsorship for employees who have stayed for 2 years.

    Opportunities to work with big name clients (particularly the larger private equity houses), FTSE 100 & 250 etc

    Cons

    The working hours can get a bit long from time to time, particularly on due diligence engagements. This could easily be avoided with a little more planning

    Advice to Management

    Recruiting and review processes both definitely need a revamp. More investment into campus presence as brand seems to be lacking a little particularly in London.

    Pros

    Very smart people, who are all social and up for having a good time too. Consultants are professional without taking themselves too seriously, resulting in a collaborative, pleasant working environment!

    Cons

    Needs to be more emphasis on investing in Roland Berger thought pieces and IP! Brand is still lagging behind its key, US competitors

    Advice to Management

    Work on maintaining relationships with alumni

    Pros

    Able to work with top companies in China.
    Smart and nice people. Enjoy working with them!

    Cons

    Part-time assistant may not be able to touch the real inside thing of the project. Every time when the team had meetings with clients, PTA was asked to go out of the office.
    PTA may not added to talent pool even when you finish your intership.
    Bad work life balance.

    Advice to Management

    Treat PTA good.

    Pros

    Colleagues are very friendly and supportive and therefore, networking across departments is easy.
    High responsibility and autonomy in the work.

    Cons

    Long working hours before events and a lot of marketing events in the evening.
    It takes them very long to create job reference documents, so in case you want to use it for another application you might have to wait up to 11 months.

    Advice to Management

    The company should focus more on staying in contact with top candidates.
