    Pros

    Interesting varied work. A large number of different positions available. Many learning opportunities. Not boring.

    Cons

    How good or bad your job is varied greatly by account. If you mind being the only American this company isn't a good fit for you. Slow advancement.

    Advice to Management

    Remember that the people who work for you are people. Find ways to keep people off the bench.
