      Pros

      Big names clients, nice office

      Cons

      Politics, gaslighting, no longer the leader in strategy because they fire the smart people and retain the mean ones, work isn’t actually good we just ride a good reputation with clients, horrible work life balance, aggressive and finger pointing management goes all the way to the top

      Pros

      Free cashews! Looks like you can move up if the right people like/notice you. Dinner is served every night at 7 (which should tell you something about the work/life balance)

      Cons

      All the cons you have read are true! the burnout here is high, most people are doing the work of 3, ZERO work/life balance, most floors are ghost towns with endless rows of empty desks, lots favoritism, major egos in leadership, location is yuck, the pace they are working people has only gotten worse with the acquisition and will probably continue to decline with the global expansion.
