    Pros

    Travel is nice, especially opportunity for international travel. Most of the employees are young and are a fun group for the most part

    Cons

    Terrible culture. Most people are especially negative and come off as arrogant and condescending. Management and peers will give you generic praise (e.g. "Good job this week") and then complain behind your back to others. The overall culture of the firm is to find things to be overly critical. Terrible job security as they currently only have 1 client and many projects are ending in a few months.

    Advice to Management

    Have a more open culture, one that promotes both positive and negative feedback instead of just negative feedback. Work harder to provide a better work life balance. Find more clients and diversify your service lines.

    Pros

    The best reasons are for the international travel, autonomy to make decisions within a project, ability to influence and engage senior client level management.

    Cons

    Limited resource bench puts significant strain on the capable leadership and project teams. This presents an interesting opportunity to manage client engagements and ensure the people on the teams don't get burned out.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more outside senior leadership.
