    Pros

    Love the highly motivated people that work here. People who work here are the best the industry has to offer. There is allot of emphasis on client delivery and adding value to clients

    Cons

    can be an environment where only the fittest survive. There are plenty of opportunities, however with that comes an unhealthy work life balance. Be prepared to put ~50-60 hours as your new baseline. Risk of burn out can be high on certain projects.

    Advice to Management

    listen to employees and how they view the organization. Share organizational change with employees. Improve hiring and look for people with skills that match the staffing profiles on projects.
