    Pros

    The firm is looking for young and enthusiastic people and the atmosphere and the workflow is really energetic and stimulating. As a first experience after the master degree i had the opportunity to get in touch with many different companies in different industries which helps a young professional to build a comprehensive over the current market situation and build valuable competencies as client interaction, project management skills, attention to detail and the ability to challenge his own work.

    Cons

    On the contrary one can get lost in so many different projects and task you get to complete. There is always some detail that could be added, the time is never enough for the amount of work related to the project and the team is usually under pressure most of the time. If you cannot imagine yourself working till late at night and travelling a lot for work consultancy is not your type of carrier.

    Pros

    Great work environment, both in terms of openness of other employees, and in terms of a great place to improve skills, learn quickly and effectively and perform a wide range of tasks.

    Cons

    Very long working hours, not ideal for everybody. Salary is not ideal, but I guess for Italian standards it's acceptable. Due to the large number of duties employees have, you'll sooner or later end up doing some work you don't enjoy!
