I worked at Morrison Hershfield as an intern (Less than a year)

Pros

The projects are interesting, and the company is growing so there's no lack of work. The structure of the company is pretty flat, the CEO is sitting just one floor up and is available to converse with. The pay is on par with other firms.

Cons

Some departments have a pretty close knit culture. There is a language barrier as well.

Advice to Management

Unify the middle management a little, instilling in them that profit is not the only thing. Short term profit may not be sustainable and may be highly volatile.
