    Pros

    Great work life balance; very friendly environment mostly made up of smart quirky people;
    The company seems to finally have figured out a real strategy in the past year and now heading towards that direction with positive results;
    The job creates the opportunity to have C-level discussions and develop a good professional network.

    Cons

    General climate of condescension from management with the upper hierarchy manifesting with not speaking up the truth;
    The "ecosystem" as they call it turns out to be a real jungle, redundant and made baroque to say the least with a number of middle figures of doubtful value;
    Career paths are still quite blurred and promotions attributed on an uncertain basis, which leaves a lot of wiggle room for some less-than-professional middle managers to push forward their 'protegés'.
    Success in this company is more than any other I've seen in the past structurally based on personal relationships - the fact of having or not a personal good relationship with an analyst might make or break your business, since they still have a great degree of freedom on deciding for whom they have time or not;
    Although there are many exceptions, working with a good deal of analysts will feel to you like turning into the agent of some tyrannic teenage pop star, so you'd better start practicing your zen.

    Advice to Management

    less jargon, more action
