Mission: For over 50 years, CRA has been a premier consulting firm. Each of our practice areas is highly regarded, and our consultants are recognized for their creative and multi-disciplinary approach to solving our clients’ complex problems in the US and throughout the world ...
I have been working at Charles River Associates full-time (Less than a year)
Some of the pros of working at CRA include a prestigious name and an equally prestigious clientele. CRA's name is widely recognized and is an impressive resume booster. The people at CRA are incredibly smart and it's been great to work with people you can learn so much from. I enjoy the CRA culture, as I go to lunch and happy hours with colleagues, getting to know the people I work with.
One con of working at CRA is because it is a consulting firm and CRA has many clients and projects, hours working can be longer than expected. However, this is necessary for any consulting firm. During the interview process, CRA made this clear. However, CRA does value the commitment and offers competitive compensation packages.
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.
This year, CRA is celebrating the fourth anniversary of our Tech Lab program, a homegrown technical education series fueled with ideas from our employees, taught by our employees, for our employees. Over 45 employee facilitators have taken the time to lead sessions (totaling more than 4,770 minutes of content) and helped foster the professional growth of their colleagues.
At CRA, we encourage colleagues to share insights about their experiences at our firm. In this blog post, Senior Associate Lisa Stockley discusses Senior Research & Analysis Core Training and transitioning from a graduate student to a consultant. http://glassdoor.com/slink.htm?key=vQbda
