    Pros

    We get to work on the highest profile projects in the world, with some of the sharpest people in the industry. Benefits are awesome, from health insurance, time off, 401k, etc. Very diverse and friendly employees.

    Cons

    The pay is not as high as others. The management expects you to work a lot. The management is aloof it seems most of the time, more concerned with financial performance of the office than performance of the workers. Rarely are poor performers let go, financials have to be really poor to lay people off. Seem to let really good ones go on because they don't care to develop them.

    Great place to start a career, not have one

    Pros

    Incredible projects to work on around the world. Offices are staffed with people from all over, not just locals. Decent professional development opportunities. Great internship opportunities. Benefits are decent.

    Cons

    Lower than average pay. Political minefield. Hard to believe the behavior of upper management is tolerated. Slow to promote from within, they usually hire upper level positions from outside the firm. They tend to favor Brits over Americans in the US offices.

    Advice to Management

    Take a good hard look in the mirror. There are some bad apples in the upper ranks.
