    Pros

    Great training and investment in employees. Good team to work with. Interesting projects to work on and ways to challenge your knowledge and abilities.

    Cons

    Long hours, high expectations to perform, hoteling system "welcome to the future," red tape and a lot of bureaucracy. Stiff hierarchy.

    Advice to Management

    Ditch the whole high performance culture and move towards a more teamwork oriented focus. Provide partners and senior members more autonomy.
