Employee Reviews

  • “Attention to detail. Our outputs are far more consistent and accurate than most competitors. Every output faces a rigorous verification process that leads to some of the best analyses in the industry.”

  • “Great first job out of college, especially if you are considering graduate school. This firm is one of the few places outside of a university where you will work with Ph.D. Economists. Its employees tend to be very intelligent and academic. Be prepared for a significant challenge, particularly in your first six months.”

  • “NERA employees tend to stay until they retire. The reason is that many of us find that of all the consulting firms, no other has the collegiality and quality of work product than us.”

  • “NERA offers many opportunities for growth and competitive compensation but is best for those willing to endure a high-stress environment.”

  • “Solid job out of college for an econ major interested in finance.”

  • “I think the firm is looking for students with relevant technical background, experience with research, and genuine intellectual curiosity.”

The writing sample they requested helped guide our conversations about economics in a direction that focused on my experience and what I brought to the table as a candidate. The recruiting team was always quick to respond, and the turnaround time between my screening interview and when I received my offer was less than 2 weeks. NERA seeks candidates who understand basic econometric frameworks, who have experience working with data and a desire to refine their data analysis coding skills, and who are easy to work with in a team setting.”

  • “The firm's callback process is extremely timely! I believe candidates typically hear back in the first couple weeks if they have moved on to the next round of interviews.”
