Pros

Great work life balance, great, friendly people and relaxed environment; opportunity to work on *big* projects that really make a difference, large budgets, tons of exposure to senior execs and senior partners at suppliers

Cons

Quite political - not clear how / why promotions happen, and performance sometimes seems second to peoples' ability to work the system.
