Pros

Incredible people that want to hear your take on everything as well as people that are able to push you to higher levels of thinking.
Amazing benefits.
Awesome work life balance for the knowledge network. You can work as much as you want if you are on an interesting project, but can easily dial it back when you want to have more personal time.

Cons

Lack of a real career path in the knowledge network. A promotion is just a title change, you are still doing the same job which becomes very easy after a while.

Advice to Management

Hire some people outside your core 10 schools in the US. Go after the occasional top candidates from public schools or other similar schools to add some diversity to the firm. Everyone now has similar pedigrees and everyone seems geared towards similar career paths. I think the firm would be better off with a more diverse population.
