    Pros

    Lots of mobility and flexibility, you are the driver of your career. Long hours, but 25 weeks PTO (including sick days). You are very encouraged to take your PTO.

    Cons

    Expected to know a lot about everything. The firm provides a lot of soft skills training, but lacks the technical training to provide the support you need to perform at the level expected of you. The firm has started a lot of knowledge management initiatives to help address this.
