    The people! Everyone says that about their own company, but truly the people at CRA are great. Everyone cares about looking after each other, delivering a great work product, and continuous improvement. Compensation is decent- salaries are at market rate or slightly below, but the bonuses are generous if you work hard. The internal infrastructure is solid allowing you to focus on the most interesting part of the job (the work!)


    As is typical of consulting firms, the hours can be long and unpredictable.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview


    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Charles River Associates (London, England (UK)) in February 2017.


    Was invited for the first round interview.
    It started with a math and verbal test. Very very easy. And then there was a written test. I was asked to summarised an article. The last part was case interview.
