    Pros

    Challenging work environment where you're surrounded by smart, motivated people and working on issues that are redefining companies and industries. As a research analyst, you get to see how different companies are facing similar challenges. You get a unique perspective on the industry.

    Cons

    The company has an always-on, type-A culture. The line between work and life is blurred because for many of your colleagues, they are one and the same thing.
