    I have been working at Roland Berger full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    1. The work at RB London is extremely varied and always interesting. Our key industries are Aerospace and Private Equity, however there is scope to be involved in practically any industry of your choosing if you are prepared to join an international team. The nature of PE work means you are exposed to a huge variety of different industries with short 2-4 week projects.

    2. The London office is small (c. 70 staff in total) which makes it easy for a new joiner to get to know everyone quickly, which greatly helps calm the settling in nerves! Everyone is very friendly and more than happy to answer your questions. There is also a relatively flat hierarchy, which means higher-ups will listen to your opinions regardless of your rank. This may not be experienced at other consulting firms.

    3. Lots and lots of training! Upon joining you are sent for 2 weeks of training with 50 of your international colleagues in the Alps. This is a great way to expand your business network and learn a whole host of hard and soft consulting skills. There are also multiple training sessions each year which involve flying over to Germany for 2-3 days (this time in much smaller groups).

    4. The culture (both globally and in the London office) is very positive, and there is a real sense of togetherness within the firm.

    Cons

    1. Naturally, a smaller office means a smaller direct professional network (however this can be replaced by a much wider international network).

    2. If you do not wish to work in Aerospace/PE/Industrials then you may be forced to work more internationally when specialising later in your career.

    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

    I worked at Roland Berger part-time

    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.
