    Pros

    Networking, career development, skills growth. You will work with some of the best and brightest in the business. You will make connections with people across many firms and competitors. Flexibility.

    Cons

    Potentially long hours. Billable hour goals. Time sheets. Lots of office politics. High potential of getting overwhelmed and burning out.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure your people are happy. Sometimes it feels like management is oblivious to the discontent certain employees might have.
