I worked at compass a while back. Did antitrust and M&A regulatory type of work. Much more academic than mgmt consulting but little travel and more predictable/reasonable hours. Depending on the firm, to keep advancing a phd in economics may be ideal


My buddy worked at Corneestone. Why?

Trying to connect folks in this industry

Just sent a message!
