    Pros

    Flexibility. Challenging when it should be. It never gets boring. I enjoy the people I work with, and there are always interesting projects to work on.

    Cons

    Management has high expectations. As they should, their expectations are reasonable. I do work a lot of overtime, but that is because I want to succeed.

    Pros

    Interesting and challenging projects. Wide variety of projects. If you forget you have a life outside of work, you will do very well.

    Cons

    Long hours, low pay. Though that seems to be the norm in the industry. Worst was the "I am the boss, you are the employee" kind of attitude by senior management. More than once I was told "to keep my boss happy!!!" Not a good team environment. The reason for bad bonus and lousy pay increase is ofcourse the "recession" though it is clear from the work load and fees that the office is doing well. And then when senior staff keep getting promoted every year, you wonder if all they tell you is true.

    Advice to Management

    Take care of all your employees, not just the senior staff.
