    A great place to start your career

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsThe firm provides a lot of resources to ensure their staff is prepared to meet client demands. Depending on your team, there are a lot of flexibility options and arrangements to ensure work/life balance. The opportunities to move within the Firm and gain new experiences are second to none. Excellent foundation for a career.

    ConsSalary is not always commensurate with job responsibilities, however, the experience gained during your time here will hopefully translate to more money in the long term.
