    I have been working at Jaros Baum & Bolles

    Pros

    - Learn a whole lot really fast
    - people are nice and help you out
    -some partners are approchable
    - young engineers crowd so you make great friends

    Cons

    -after a few years of learning you either do really well or get stuck doing the same things
    -you can tell within the year if you will ever be able to move up or not, most likely not so time to move on
    -not a place to stay at for too long
    -compensation sucks, medical sucks, times of no overtime sucks as you may still have to work long hours at times and get comp days which you may not have time to take off
    -whent here is overtime, you have not much of a social life

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    -would be nice to have learning sessions where ppl can share ideas and learn from each other
    -provide better salary/raises/bonuses/medical
