Most Helpful Critical Review

Former Employee - Manager

The partners at Marakon are extremely smart and they're not afraid to roll up their sleeves and get involved with the problem solving, which is an incredible learning opportunity for the entire team. The work that Marakon does is true strategy consulting which is incredibly rare today. The organization is also very flat and each person's opinion is highly valued.

Value in working at Marakon is right out of college. Less value for experienced or post-MBA hires.

Former Employee - Senior Associate/Consultant

Good group on junior level. Senior level is uneven, some great partners and people to work for and some terrible. Depends on project/location/team, similar to other consulting.

Solid boutique for those who know the firm. Not great brand name awareness overall.

Marakon provides a platform to think and add-value to high level clients/executives. For someone looking to be a career consultant, it is a very entrepreneurial environment. For someone looking to use consulting as a springboard to a different career, Marakon provides a great framework and financial grounding for how to think about strategy.

Marakon is entrepreneurial and inclusive and values the perspective of all team members.

Marakon is highly regarded by the people who know what it is/does. The firm is not as well known as its competitors, and is much smaller than other firms. I believe that, when given the opportunity, the firm "punches above its weight".

Former Employee - Manager

Small firm with big clients on big engagements, which means you get a lot more and a lot faster exposure relative to your experience.

Intellectual horsepower is key to being successful. Advancement and credibility is built on your ability to be mentally acute.

Marakon is a truly special place to work, especially right out of school. It's boutique nature and pure strategy projects provide a lot of early responsibility and a steep learning curve, but it is extremely rewarding. I can say that within my first year I can already tell a difference between my business acumen and my peers at other companies. The smaller nature really allows one to have early access to some incredible thinkers in advanced positions, both inside and outside the firm.

Current Employee - Associate/Consultant

With its small size, Marakon has a very collegial and collaborative culture. Everyone in the office is willing to drop what they're doing and help at a moments notice. There is also a very open and accepting culture, for example, it is very common to see partners eating lunch with the first year associates in the cafeteria, or hanging out in the bullpen discussing current events.

Current Employee - Associate/Consultant

Marakon doesn't have the brand reputation as other some other firms because of its size. However, I strongly believe that those who know the firm hold it in the same esteem as the big 3. We consistently compete with, and many times beat, the big 3 for strategy project work across a range of industries.

100% strategy projects. High-impact engagements with tier-1 clients (C-suite, board level, etc.). Global staffing (Canada, UK, Australia...)

Project work and progress is visible to everyone. Communication from leadership to levels below is easy and open. Among the consultants everyone is supportive. We have fun together and also work great together as a team.
