    Pros

    Theoretically, you can get a lot of exposure and can "move a bunch of balls forward"

    Cons

    The sad reality of the firm is that it's extremely change averse. They preach entrepreneurial spirit, but people who try and do new things are shut down. They're overrun with the children of leaders, who take on an anointed status within the firm.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Add some checks and balances to hiring and performance management. Don't get caught up in thinking years of experience is the only determinant of merit.

    Doesn't Recommend
