    Pros

    I've had a great career here for 6 years right out of undergrad - been focused on growth strategy, within healthcare for the last 3 years. The work is quite often very interesting, there are tons of opportunities and support to expand your knowledge and skills, and most of the people I've worked with have been smart, competent, and supportive.

    Cons

    There are definitely some unreasonable people / jerks floating around. And the hours are long. Also, a big caveat to all I've said is that experience varies substantially by position - I've been fortunate enough to do some of the most interesting work we do (Strategy), but IMHO (and many others'), our risk, tech, and operations work (which is most of what we do) is much less interesting. And occasionally, the firm will sell a large, lucrative body shop project which involves doing mindless work and pull everyone who is unstaffed onto it - which is a colossal waste of your time.
