This isn't a con as much as a comment and piece of advice:
-If you allow yourself to get bored or discouraged, the core work at times can be boring and discouraging. There are many opportunities available to employees of all tenure levels to pursue to mitigate the feelings that may arise for some employees as a function of the cyclical nature of the core work. Get involved in these opportunities.
Advice to Management
Even though it's important to be cohesive as a management team, work towards your strengths! If one manager's preference is more towards projects, help them manage people who are most interested in projects so that they can collaborate and learn from one another. If another manager's preference is people, allow them to manage the people centered projects. The management team already does a good job of doing this, but I think it's important to keep it in mind so that management can continue feeling valuable and employees can continue to grow.
I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Cambridge Associates, LLC (Los Angeles, CA) in February 2018.
