    Great place to work! The opportunities offered by this firm are amazing and you will learn so much during your time at the firm.

    Cons

    Busy season!. Be ready to put in 12+ hour days for a couple of months of the year. Pay could be better. Exit opportunities are more limited as you move up in the hierarchy,
