Pros

Opportunities to learn, grow and demonstrate your value are endless. Highly motivated and some of the best minds in the industry are your peers.

Cons

Work life balance goes out for a toss. Work and long hours can be taxing. This is not a place for everybody.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Hire more people. Need to have more redundancy. While we are proud of how much each of us can stretch and accomplish, even a rubber band loses it's elasticity after a while.
Need to be more considerate to the people and make proactive efforts to help employees in their work-life balance

    Pros

    Great atmosphere to work in. Intelligent staff and able to ask questions and get answers from co-workers. Great convenient location. Fun after hours and group activities.

    Cons

    Managers are not clear on what they want/need. Supervisors do not stand behind their team members. Favoritism shown to certain employees. If a senior manager has a problem with you they will let you go without considering your feedback (this usually happens after mid year review). Upper management doesn't address complaints about middle management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more clear and concise on what your needs/wants are. Don't tell someone they're doing good if you have a problem with their work (it's not effective for you/them).

    Pros

    Great preparation for high-demand, high energy situations such as finance or other consulting firms. Decent compensation and good opportunities for training, if you make that a priority

    Cons

    Easy to burn out, no emphasis is placed on work-life balance and recognition is not necesarrily given where it should be

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It should either be a priority that all of the different tracks, different project teams, and employees from different offices have similar hours, or they should be compensated differently.
