BRG is an econ/litigation consulting firm, so I believe exits are more aligned to data science/econometrics rather than your typical corporate strategy MBB exits. They place well in to top MBA programs though. Work is geared towards number crunching/econometrics so if you like that. I've heard the people at BRG tend to be younger than other econ consulting firms which can be a plus for the culture.

They recruited heavily at my school. Seemed like a younger, highly intellectually curious group of people. Solid people culture from what I could tell, and certainly some of the sharper folks I interacted with during recruiting.

In terms of the work, they will sell a bit of management consulting work here and there but the majority is econ/litigation as alluded to above. Clients are primarily law firms and day-to-day is around building complex models and dashboards (using things like excel, SQL, Python, Alteryx, Tableau, etc.) to quantify the economic or financial implications of a legal dispute.

The work can be VERY interesting (e.g. building a machine learning model to tell a lawyer how much $$ the trade secrets that Google stole from Apple are worth for their bottom line) or much more mundane (e.g. analyzing accounting data to look into anti-trust activity in the utilities sector) -- it is a mixed bag

During my time at an Alix/A&M/FTI they consistently were in the top 5 for restructuring billings which I thought was odd given I also had the same perception of them as the posts above.

And Understandably so, MiddleBucketPledge.

BRG's RX arm, from my understanding, grew substantially after its acquisition of Capstone, where most of the members were part of the Policano & Manzo legacy group of FTI. The acquisition essentially helped place BRG on the top 3-5 radar.

Can't speak to the day-to-day there but my firm has hired them for due diligence in the healthcare space and they're excellent. I've heard through the grapevine that investment banks advising healthcare companies on sales recommend hiring them before a buyer can because they've been known to blow up processes with some of the stuff they can dig up. Completely anecdotal but w/e

It's comparable to Analysis Group, CRA, etc. except BRG also does (as noted above) restructuring/forensic accounting/healthcare work in addition to the pure "high stakes" litigation stuff that AG/CRA/etc. do.

BRG is basically LECG 2.0, the founder (David Teece) founded Law and Economics Consulting Group and led it until the firm went bankrupt in 2010 or so.

The above are all accurate depictions of the firm in their own respects, but I think the most important take-away is that they, like most consulting firms, have multiple arms, mostly due to relatively recent acquisitions.

While the firm might be "more well-known" for its economics damages/litigation related practices, if you took a look at the inner workings of the firm, the Corporate Finance division (from TAS to RX) is one of its more prominent practices.
