    Pros

    As you move up within the firm there is a lot of flexibiilty in terms of where you work from and compensation is fair if not more than fair.

    Cons

    Firm is focused on utilization rate too much which adds pressure to work all of the time. As you move up within the firm, it becomes harder and harder to learn new technical skills because your billing rate may be too high to work on a project.
