    Great place to work, relatively flat organizational structure but limited career progression options at mid career stage

    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    - Friendly colleagues and senior management fairly approachable. - Strong expertise in certain verticals healthcare, energy etc. and a great opportunity to learn for junior level employees. - Good work/life balance options in terms of being abled to work flexible schedules - Reasonable compensation and benefits.

    Cons

    - Limited collaboration across practices and within certain practices because compensation structure for Ds and MDs is based more on achieving individual targets. - Challenging work environment at mid career stage where utilization targets are too aggressive which does not lend itself well to focusing efforts on business development initiatives that will get you to the next career stage. - Work in some verticals can get boring and junior staff at times may not have flexibility to develop skills beyond their sub practice areas.

    Pros

    There is a lot of flexibility to do the work you are interested in and the flexibility to maintain a good work/life balance.

    Cons

    It is a very corporate environment which allows for people to fall through the cracks and promotes competition over collaboration.
