    Pros

    Smart guys. Ethical, dynamic industry - something is always shaking. You make consulting mone while traveling one twentieth as much. You work face to face with your clients, who are big hitters and consistent performers at the biggest companies you have (or should have) heard of.

    Cons

    There are two camps of partners. One are really cool and equitable. A true meritocracy. The other camp operates on politics. They managed to oust the founder. The managing partner is a good man, and one of the brightest minds in payments. A couple of the other partners are hot-heads who can either make you or break you.

    Pros

    Probably the top payments advisory firm in the world. There is so much knowledge inside the building I don't understand why every payments firm in the industry is not breaking down the doors of this place to get a glimpse of what's inside! Lots of interaction with clients. Senior members of the firm actually listen to opinions of junior employees and try hard to make the analyst life a worthwhile experience - is a two way street though - must give to get. A true open door policy with senior professionals.

    Cons

    Very small firm - at times can feel like a family business, which is good and bad. Star performers hog all the top notch assignments. Is very much an up or out culture. Senior management will not be forthcoming with performance reviews and analysts must be very assertive to become aware of how they are performing and read between the lines. Personal benchmarking to peers is key to success. The senior professionals seem to enjoy watching the junior analysts compete with each other.

    Advice to Management

    Hire a CEO!! Firm leadership suffers from no single leader. The partners lead as a group - though very distracted with client work and business development. As a group, they do not share much information about the partnership with the rank and file.
