    Pros

    Great people, a heavy investment in personal and professional development, interesting clients, huge global footprint, strong pay and benefits

    Cons

    Performance review is still highly political, bad apples at various levels of leadership can drive people out of the company, long hours and difficult work/life boundaries, lots of extra work expected on top of client service delivery - but many of these things are not atypical of any large professional services firm

    Work /Life Balance is hit or miss based on your project. Company will sell this on interview, but managers and leaders need to be signed on to these philosophies. Varies from project to project.

    Pros

    Company has great resources from the initial on-boarding program, to on-going learning facility (DU), technology, technical support, travel support and upper management willing to invest in you at an early stage. Additionally, company is very competent at recruiting not only top candidates, but candidates that fit their environment. All of these factors create help make a stressful work environment positive and fun.

    Cons

    While there has been an emphasis on work-life fit in the last few years, they can only do so much as at the end of the day it's client facing work with tight deadlines.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to work on work-life fit. Additionally, put more an emphasis on engagement planning and staffing planning to even work loads and create stable teams.
