Pros

Youthful office, very good social life with colleagues, especially as most are expats.
Great candidate/client management system
Supportive management
Feels like a real company in terms of professionalism and benefits compared to some other ones I have worked for.
If you bill well and consistently you have nothing to worry about and it can be quite enjoyable with good career development

Cons

Discretionary team bonus - not transparent on what you will earn and also reliant on team members to perform well and management not being greedy ( can be an issue when a number are having babies that they need to support!)
Broken promises (a running theme in recruitment)
Some office politics, you need to have read Sun Tzu to get on top!

Advice to Management

If office isn't performing stop going out on Friday "management lunches" which are then expensed and stick with your teams until you are all performing again!!
