Most pure form of meritocracy
Tremendous learning curve
Wide range of opportunities
Wealth of resources
Great benefits package
Pretty good salary (though not for the hours)

Cons

Too intense
Really poor lifestyle, often driven by travel/work that isn't necessary
Clients often not capable of executing the strategies we give them, so less fulfilling
