    Interesting work and really capable colleagues but long and unpredictable hours

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    - Interesting and varied project work and the opportunity to get involved in internal initiatives - Capable colleagues and a spirit of camaraderie, particularly amongst junior staff - Some project managers are really exceptional and go above and beyond to teach you new skills and advise on next steps in your role and career more generally

    Cons

    The major con at CRA is the unpredictable and long hours. It's not uncommon to be given tight deadlines out of the blue and we often have to stay late in the evenings to make these. This makes it challenging to have a work-life balance, especially from Monday to Friday.
