    Pros

    Generally very capable coworkers who you can depend on and a great place to be to see how a large, effective company runs.

    Cons

    Being on different projects (even for the same client) can have radically different experiences. One project might have hours that are 9-5ish while another project is consistently working 12 hour days and those working on the 12 hour a day project do not get overtime (at most levels) and at the end of the year are evaluated and rewarded the same as any other project.

    Advice to Management

    Find a way to give something extra to the people who work on projects with long hours for extended periods of time. Most people that are on a project that is working crazy hours had nothing to do with the scope/timeline accepted, yet take the brunt of impact when the project is 'behind schedule' before work even began.

    Advice to Management

    - Improve internal documentation process, to minimize conflict of information b/w HR and what is published.
    - Keep pushing for learning, and growing a stronger/smarter workforce

    Work life balance can be an after thought even though it's talked as top of mind. Projects aren't scoped accurately thus you are expected to be on call 24/7.
