NERA vs. Compass Lexecon

I've gotten offers at both companies for internships. I'm leaning more towards NERA because I really connected well with one of my interviewers, but when you do a Glassdoor comparison, people seem to rate their experience at Compass more highly in many aspects, and I do care about work-life balance and office culture. 

Link to comparison here. 

I'm also leaning towards NERA because they seem more reputable? Is it true that they actually are more reputable? 

If it matters, I'm planning to re-recruit during the fall at MBB, Cornerstone and Analysis Group, and just generally at other strategy consulting firms that'll come on campus for FT recruiting. 

In the future, I'd want to work in quantitative market research and/or a data analyst role and I may or may not get an MBA
