    Pros

    You are working at the top firm in its industry. Name recognition. Does well financially. Your colleagues are smart as hell, and everyone is a top performer. You will learn a lot.

    Cons

    Work life balance is nill. Pretty much everyone works 60-80 hours a week. It is a very "pass the buck" environment - i.e. no one takes accountability for their own actions - it's always someone else's fault. People do not treat each other well here.

    A very basic job, simple interview process. A bunch of college buddies and myself applied here and were hired. It was an excellent stepping stone. A weekly paycheck, a large recognizable company. Great cafeteria.

    Cons

    Traffic is brutal, hours are long. Highschool culture: employees and management. its very easy to get trapped here but , I wouldn't suggest working here longer than six months

    Advice to Management

    treat employees like adults

    Pros

    Depending which OpCo you work in there is good work life balance and laid back culture.

    Cons

    I have been consistently told the pay is not up to market and there are always budget cuts effecting salaries, work load and hiring freezes.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in your colleagues so they stay and pass along their work experience and build upon it.

    Pros

    Overall, the company was a good company with a positive reputation. They hired good, hard-working people who are goal-oriented.

    Cons

    I don't think all of management appreciated their employees fully. They seem to go through a period of laying off people every year, which questions why they hire additional people in the first place. Usually, it's due to budget cuts and not job performance.
