    Pros

    great learning experience, excelent teams and resources at associate level, but politics start to play a role as you move up

    will open quite a few doors

    Cons

    tough, tough, tough did I say t o u g h?

    65 hours are common and expected

    Pros

    Superb organisation with high integrity, great opportunities and excellent training. It's #1 for a reason

    Cons

    Long work hours, perfection to the point of absurdity, decreasing incremental value toward the end of studies, solutions can err on the theoretical and feel incomplete
