Great $ and opportunity if you're willing to spend the time and put in the hours.

Pros

It's a place where you can move up quickly and be compensated well if you work hard and show tangible results, e.g., bring in new business, grow business, etc.

Cons

It's not a 40 hour a week job. I averaged at least 60-65+ hours and travelled quite a bit. With the exception of travel, junior people are expected to put in the hours if they want to be promoted as well. If you want to be a mom and see your kids, this is not a place to work.

Advice to Management

Try to figure out a way to build in flexible hours for more senior women in the organization. There is no such thing as part-time in this organization regardless of what the company may say -- nor are they really open to it if you are a Director or above. You are expected to manage teams (in person), bring in new $$ and travel.
