  • “As a summer analyst, I believe that the firm culture was amazing at the Boston office. Everyone was so friendly, supportive, and willing to go out of their way to help you out in any way possible. The hours I was required to work [were] honestly about 40-50, and full-timers protected summers as much as possible from any egregious work hours.”

  • “I think the interviews were straightforward, and I never felt like an interviewer was trying to trick me or get me to mess up. All the interviewers were friendly, and I think interviews gave a good sense not only of the type of work done at the firm but also of the type of people the firm employs. I thought the interviews were fairly straightforward, and you can easily find examples of econ consulting case interviews online. Behavioral portions were very typical.”
