      Pros

      Smart people, salaries are generally higher than competitors. Company culture better than competitors

      Do not stand by work/life balance narrative. Constant utilization pressure, forcing staff to return (Including parents w/out child care) to the office during unsafe Covid-19 conditions. They play favorites for promotions
