    -Decent Pay
    -Some interesting project if you are lucky
    -Good Training
    -Great offices
    -Flexibility in working hours

    Cons

    From the moment you step in you realise that there is a culture of fear, where people are afraid to speak up.

    Most people are very quick to jump to conclusions and you need to be constantly cautious of who you speak and what you say. Even the most innocent comment can get you into trouble.

    There is a prevalent old boys club culture where either you play by the partners' rules or you are singled out. First you are not put into projects, then you get bad performance rating and then gradually you are pushed out of the firm.

    The whole operating model of the company is based in turnover. They hire talented people for a couple of years, take advantage of their skills and knowledge and then they let them go, make them redundant or simply fire them.
