      Pros

      Paternity leave policies are fantastic

      Cons

      Engagements are becoming longer (i.e. from 3mo to 6mo on average) and increasingly focussed on program management Remuneration is now on par with some corporate and even government jobs, therefore, not attracting the best talent anymore

    8. 5.0

      Probably funnest big firm to work at

      9 Jun 2020 - Consultant in Sydney
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      - Really friendly people - Lot of activities for your class - Huge class sizes - A lot of on-line learning, especially with the hot tools such as Tableau and Alteryx which all consultants must know how to use

      Cons

      - Having worked at a smaller firm, the leverage model isnt great. At Bain, I really only worked on cases with a higher leverage model. So I was learning from someone who knew less than I did as the firm follows strict ranking hierarchy - MekkoGraphics is by and far inferior to ThinkCell. Need to think about the productivity loss.
