    I have been working at Alvarez & Marsal full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great Compensation
    Smart co-workers and bosses
    Projects can be interesting
    Can learn a lot, be exposed to a lot
    Project teams vary, so you get to work with different people and styles
    Travel, if you like it

    Cons

    Hours can be unreasonable for long periods of time (depending on project & team)
    Work can be tedious and boring (depending on project & team)
    Travel, it gets old being away from home more days than not
    Management has an attitude, important to be part of the good old boys club
    As time goes on, there is more and more deceit - with the client, with the clients advisors and amongst ourselves, etc - it's tough to keep the story straight when working with people, and it makes for an uncomfortable environment
    Cut-throat atmosphere amongst peers, a culture where putting others down can help you get promoted
    The culture and values they say they believe in (family first, not pumping hours...) are not actually there in practice
