    Advice to Senior ManagementPlay to analyst strengths.

    Summer Analyst

    Summer Analyst (Former Employee) Miami, FL (US)

    ProsGreat Pay, nice people to work with.

    ConsLots of micromanagement. The work is pretty boring, very mundane and lots of data entry. Hope you like linkedin.

    Work hard, no speaking. Think of your typical "Office Space" setting

    No room for growth. You can work as hard as you want, and maybe after 15 years you'll become a Research Director, but good luck ever becoming a Consultant.

    Advice to Senior ManagementYou're all very nice people. Nothing bad to report about you, but I guess the industry is very boring by its nature.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Great culture, great learning experience
