    Pros

    Company is extremely focused on employee satisfaction, sometimes to the detriment of the bottom line. Excellent opportunities for advancement but expectations are high.

    Cons

    It is a consulting business so layoffs are reality but the company does its best to locate new opportunities for employees. You must be willing to travel.
