    Very flexible workplace
    You do not have one boss and work with many different people
    Opportunity for advancement is very high
    Partnership group is very development focused and has many learning and professional development opportunities.

    Cons

    Salary adjustments between average and high performers are not that much different. Compensation plan is changing to reward performance more. I am looking forward to see if it actually does reward a high performer or not.
    In comparison to other MPLS Big four offices, gym and health benefits are not offered to the same degree.
    The feeling of just being another number takes place at times and can make you lose motivation.

    Have more separation between high performance and average performance.
