    Avantages

    Paycheck is fairly good. Project based means lots of variation. If you make partner you can make millions.

    Inconvénients

    Long hours - low compensation/hour. Meaningsless work. Most colleagues incredibly dull. Spending 4 days/week away will kill your soul.

    Avantages

    Oliver Wyman is a great firm with top quality talent, with a culture that attracts people that are genuinely interested in helping each other succeed. Strong on-the-job coaching and mentorship in the case team environment, transparent performance measurement with rigorous feedback, quick promotions for high achievers, excellent opportunities for MBA programs or industry positions when leaving the firm.

    Inconvénients

    The usual downsides of management consulting: heavy workload, lots of travel, unpredicatable schedules, difficulty maintaining a reasonable work/life balance while also meeting the constant expectation for very high performance. This intensity makes the firm a great place to learn a lot in a short period of time but a challenging place to stay for an extended career.

    Avantages

    Incredibly nice people and lots of flexibility to take time off and work flexible schedules. The 10/11 Month year is highly popular and allows people to pursure personal goals. Also, non-profit fellowships allow people to volunteer and get paid 40% of their base salary to do so. Lots of opportunity to travel with new consultants being able to get on international cases day one (v.s competitors where you have to wait until year 3).

    Inconvénients

    Internal confusion over recent rebrand. One brand, but still operated as two very separate businesses (Legacy Mercer Management as GMC, and Legacy Mercer Oliver Wyman as FS). While the client facing company is one brand, internally the company operates as two firms.

    Avantages

    The firm is a good place to start a career--particuliarly if you're young and willing to travel internationally. Travel is consistent--and mandatory. The camraderie among analysts, consultants, & associates is great, and the firm does invest in programs to try to provide events, etc. If you are interested in specific areas--like aviation & retail (think pricing), the practices are deep and you'll get promoted--at the cost of specialization early on. It's not the place to go for a broad-based, traditional strategy consulting experience, but you'll move up quickly if you have a knack for either of the aforementioned areas. The firm developed some flexible work options during the market crash in '01, and they're still in place, which is good.

    Inconvénients

    The issues are that most of the good people leave for better jobs--and as of last year, the management seemingly ignored turnover and did not confront the source of poor morale. People at other firms generally seemed happier with compensation, managers, work-life balance, and project choice. There are quite a few awful project managers who were promoted up through the ranks based on sheer analytical skills...some have the rare ability to lead and teach those skills. Most do not, which results in really unhappy and ineffective project teams that work quite a few late nights. I've heard they put in place morale measurement on project teams, but this still doesn't factor into comp or promotion heavily--so I'm doubtful much should change.
