Pros

Flexible work environment to balance out long hours (depends on the team you work for).
Endless opportunities to transfer geographically and across departments if you perform well.
Lots of extracurricular activity: affinity groups, social groups, sports teams.
Steep learning curve and plenty of fun trainings.
Great high profile and small clients. Chance to interact with all levels from day one.
Per diem for traveling and team lunches/outings.
Collegiate environment with strong mentor/counselor programs.
Always striving to be a "best place to work"

Cons

Potentially long and even longer hours. Don't be afraid to push back within reason.
Can be very political depending on which group you're in.
Seniors and up aren't always held accountable for developing staff.
Sometimes more talk than walk and offices aren't consistently implementing same ideas.
Pressure to maintain high utilization or hours.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Hold people accountable for developing others and create a meaningful performance management system. During busy seasons make time for people to write solid reviews to avoid rush of compliance deadline. Be upfront about all issues and don't reward high performers based solely on technical competence.

Be a trailblazer in developing initiatives rather than reacting to competitor firms.

    Cons

    You need to constantly billable. Unless you are contributing to some significant practice development work, you constantly feel the pressure to be in some project or the other.
