Pros

It is a great company with lots of opportunities to bolster your personal growth skills, network with many people and become a better professional.

Cons

Work hours may be quite difficult to cope with. It is also frustrating that the corporate headquarters have several computing resrouces that are unavailable to the layman employee.

    I have been working at SOM full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Opportunity to work on large and renowned projects.
    Nice office on wall street.
    Good salary and benefits.
    Incredible learning culture

    Cons

    The work- life balance is horrible.
    It is expected for people to work long hours and weekends.
    Most employes stay for 2-3 years, And leave burned out. The people that stay longer is because they were lucky to find one of the few mentors that exist within the organization.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Create real mentorship programs.
    Concentrate on talent retention.
    Evaluate your middle management.

    Recommends
