      Pros

      - great people in every office that are down-to-earth, very approachable, and hard-working - very well liked by clients, especially on a personal level, which increasingly helps win business - flat hierarchies with many partners that make time to answer questions and chat - allows for fast career progression if performance and network is good - on a tremendous growth trajectory, gaining share from MBB, on track to double in size by 2020 while staying profitable - early exposure to C-suite if you proof yourself

      Cons

      - travel (national staffing, some global if requested) and working hours, although this very much depends on project and team, which you can influence quite a bit - although better than in any corporate treadmill, training and development is limited due to size - retirement contribution is weak if you don't stay for at least 3-5 years - alumni network needs improvement

      Pros

      Very interesting projects and very great culture compared to other firms. I very much appreciate the culture change, it is one of the most inclusive consulting firms and the job is very challenging

      Cons

      As in all consulting firms, the working hours are not the best. I've been lucky to only work few weekends, but other people cannot say the same
