    Pros

    Great projects, also internationally (although for smaller offices it is not fully true).
    Possibility to jump over a few career steps and learn a lot.
    Opportunity to meet and learn from many clever people, as well as try your own initiatives on projects (depends on partner/principal/PM)

    Cons

    Not so well paying as McK, BCG, even within RB but across geographies... Package is also very thin compared to others.
    Management not very interested in team feeling, work overburden etc. If you don't alert them, you can work till death. Often tasks are assigned 2-3 career steeps over your position (like PMing a project - clear cost cutting).
    Some partners try to show they know everything, although they don't. Some promise too much to the Client (no assertiveness).
    Recruitment hit rate is very low, especially at higher levels.

    Advice to Management

    Really try to understand the current team feeling
    Work out staffing so that people are allocated to areas they are the most interested in
