I was wondering if anybody had information on Cornerstone Research. I know they do litigation-related consulting.
- Are they a good place to work?
- Would someone choose them over other firms like katzenbach/Oliver Wyman...etc.
- How is their placement to b-school? Thanks!
What's It Like Working at Cornerstone?
There are several posts in WSO comparing the different firms (see Related Reading below).
Certified Consulting Professional @Hayek shared additional insights on Cornerstone
Cornerstone is one of the 5-6 major economic consulting firms, along with NERA, CRA, Analysis Group, and Brattle Group. Out of those five, CRA and NERA are the largest. In terms of prestige and work environment, they're all about equal.
If you enjoy doing research and you really like economics, you'll get a great experience at Cornerstone or the other aforementioned places.
All of these places have good bschool placement though many people go to law school, get PhD's, do masters degrees in something, etc. I have heard of people getting into bschools such as MIT-Sloan, NYU-Stern, and Northwestern. Also a few people have done economics PhDs, some at very top schools.
Cornerstone is a bit unique among these firms because most of their experts are external academics rather than internal. They're also the smallest of the above firms, and I think they stick to a tighter recruiting schedule.
