    Pros

    For top performers, the money the money is good, and there are a good number of top performers and talented people. Opportunity to work on some game changing initiatives even at a junior level.

    Cons

    Bureaucracy is stifling. Solve something in an afternoon, and spend 3 years on a roadshow getting everyone and their mother to sign on an commit resources. Talent pool quality has dipped quite a bit over the last 3-5 years, and the culture of excellence has become one of "mediocrity then move one".

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It's easy for a soldier to feel like a patriot during battle, but they need to feel that way when peeling potatoes at well. Need to emphasize across the firm that the day to day is just as important to the business as important big ticket events.
