    Pros

    -Management is incredibly supportive of their employees.
    -Close bonds are forged between employees and management.
    -D&R has an entrepreneurial spirit that contradicts what you might expect from a large financial institution.
    -There are always opportunities to get involved. Inspires personal and professional growth by empowering employees to decide when and how they want to get involved in these opportunities and make valuable contributions.
    -Open lines of communication between management and their employees--they want to know how to best serve you as their employee and help them develop.
    -Opportunities to interact with a number of different groups within the firm from within D&R.
    -Although the career trajectory in PRG levels off at Senior Analyst, there are opportunities to move into a new role within Cambridge, and management is supportive of helping you as the employee find your niche (both while working in D&R and when starting to think about moving outside of the group).
    -Opportunity to work on complex client relationships, hone strong relationship building, communication, and organizational skills.
    -Incredible flexibility and great benefits.
    -Instrumental in developing core professional skills.

    Cons

    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.
