    Current Employee - Engagement Manager in New York, NY (US)

    I have been working at Oliver Wyman full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    - Global staffing policy means projects all over the world (I've covered four continents in five years)
    - Truly great culture that is present in all offices (New York / Boston / Chicago / London / Munich / Paris / Dubai)
    - Work hard, play hard attitude - there's always room for fun (it's written in the core values)
    - Very clear and quick path to management, I was managing a team of two in my third year with OW and presenting directly to C-Suite executives shortly after
    - Define your own career, accelerate as quickly as you like through specialization or remain a generalist. Plenty of opportunity to refresh your energy through non-profit fellowships, temporary leave of absence, or externship
    - Business school is an option but not a requirement
    - Supportive culture with both formal training and coaching as well as informal mentorship and guidance
    - Small 'elite squad' in a large corporate holding
    - Very competitive compensation and benefits

    Cons

    - Being part of a listed company sometimes leads to shortsighted decision making by management (focus on near term sales rather than long-term client investment)
    - Global staffing model means travel can be gruesome
    - Specialization in certain industries can lead to consultants being pressured to focus on an industry early in their career
    - Integration of Oliver Wyman and Mercer Mgmt Consulting wasn't flawless, leading to some friction between the current practice groups. Though I expect this to clear through the next year or two as new classes cycle in.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Focus on mid-level consultant development (Associate / Engagement Manager), a lot of time and effort has gone into the structuring of our junior consultant and partner value propositions but the middle layer feels left out
    - Invest in longer-term client and industry development outside of Financial Services (white papers / conferences / etc.)
