    I worked at Oliver Wyman full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    People are fun and nice to work with. Ok work life balance.

    Cons

    Performance system pretended to be scientific but too much judgement and external factors driving the appraisal.

    Advice to Management

    Use a simpler one!

  6. "Fast-growing firm"

    StarStarStarStarStar
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee 
    Positive Outlook

    I have been working at Oliver Wyman full-time

    Pros

    Can quickly specialise in an industry or practice, often much more quickly than competitors. Other pros are common to Tier 1 & 2 management consulting firms in general (decent pay, prestige, exit opportunities, etc.)

    Cons

    Limited set of industries or practices to choose from in smaller offices. Other cons are common to the consulting industry.

    Advice to Management

    Step up the organised training to enable new joiners to be less reliant on on-the-job training. Keep working to increase transparency in setting expectations and targets to consultants.

    I have been working at Oliver Wyman

    Pros

    fun, good culture, people are very supportive. The Asia market is growing extremely quickly and we have tons of opportunities

    Cons

    Hours can be quite long, i worked till 2am for 2 consecutive weeks. Other than that it seems great

    Advice to Management

    Give more autonomy and choices to consultants on staffing

    I worked at Oliver Wyman full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    1. Very intelligent people 2, Regional/Global staffing -- meaning well travelled 3. Very good culture, fun group to hang out and travel together with (when I first joined)

    Cons

    1. Legacy OW could be too narrowly focussed on Financial Services - hard to get a more generalist view on business. 2. Consulting projects in FS such as banks these days are mostly defensive plays instead of more innovative topics 3. Challenging work life balance compared to MMB peers

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your people more, especially when it comes to venturing into emerging markets.

    Doesn't Recommend
    No Opinion of CEO

    I worked at Oliver Wyman full-time

    Pros

    -- opportunities to work on international projects and travel for training and offsites (also a chance to realise that other offices have it much better than us) -- you learn how to work hard -- pay is good. if you do it for anything, do it for the money

    Cons

    -- no concept of work/life balance...greedy partners exploit consultants to the max. All-nighters are common. No apologies for postponed and cancelled vacations -- staffers don't stand up for consultants -- most managers (maybe all but 2 or 3) are inept and create a lot of unnecessary work -- misogynistic...I felt sorry for my female colleagues -- vs. other consulting firms and even other OW offices, very little...

    Advice to Management
