Firsthand Findings

Employee Reviews


  • “A stellar firm that outperforms all competitors consistently over the past years - now even faster than before.”

  • “Compared to the competition, what sets us apart is an amazing work culture, better than I imagined. I have worked at other consulting firms but this one is definitely different.”

  • “Great international firm with interesting local opportunities. Amazing place to work with great colleagues. Meritocratic system recognizing each consultant value from day one.”

  • “I chose OW because the smaller size of the firm w/r/t MBB allows you to have high exposure from the very first time, working in an extremely competitive environment with amazing people and top clients. This results in a less structured career path w/r/t peers, but you have more flexibility to find soon your position within such an amazing firm.”

  • “Oliver Wyman has a set of unique capabilities with a specialists group offering positions for engineers willing to get involved in technology and technical issues for manufacturing industries. Join Oliver Wyman Engineers!”

  • “Ultimately your career at OW will not be handed to you - you have to go out and achieve your goals and seek opportunities. But if you have the drive, you will go further than anywhere else.”

  • “You'll be challenged all the time and you'll work with people who are genuinely nice. Senior leadership are friendly, and a buddy system is in place to ensure you always have someone to ask questions. I started earlier this year, and it honestly could not have gone better in terms of the projects I've worked on and the people I've met. I made a great decision to join.”

Getting Hired Here


  • “Entry level graduates coming from a selective list of schools; good quantitative skills and business sense; ambition and motivation; ability to collaborate and work across themes (as well as across geographies); strong interpersonal skills.”

  • “Extremely efficient and honest interview process which is great for the candidate. Someone with good problem solving skills, entrepreneurs and an ability to work in a team.”

  • “Interviews with a diverse group of people and a cross-section of seniority levels in order to see different perspectives and to build trust. Ideal candidate is very strong analytically but also emotionally and socially intelligent.”

  • “The firm are looking for people with the credentials and problem-solving skills to help their clients, as well as values in line with the firm's image e.g., a team player, inclusive etc."

  • “We aim to call back the same day, or at least at the start of the following week (given interviews are Fridays). The ideal OW candidate is a free thinker, ideally someone who thrives in an environment without strict hierarchies and brings their genuine self to the interview. Those who seek to fit a consulting model will probably have friction against our more laid-back approach”
