    Pros

    Stunning work life balance when you are not in peak times
    Firm is generous in arranging regular fun events and funding daily fun activities during and after work
    Most colleagues are fun loving making this work experience a memorable chapter of your life

    Cons

    The majority of people including management in this company do not have strategy consulting experience, if they have it is for a short period of time.
    Utterly unhealthy practices especially during partner assessments in the MENA region.
    compliance with business ethics is said to be unnecessary and childish and management believe business ethics are for text books not for real business.
    Low salaries for most employees but very high salaries for management's favorite.

    Advice to Management

    Don't push employees to flag negative comments in Glassdoor cause by doing this you are admitting to your weaknesses that will backfire on you!
    If you really have some larger consultings want to acquire you, seriously sell and do something you are good at.

    Organize your company, adhere to local laor and tax laws, set priorities in what services you provide and focus on your core business. Too much show off and over-marketing. Overpromising to clients

    Pros

    You work closely with the principal, who was happy to give you guidance
    The staff in each office is small enough, you can get to know each other pretty well

    Cons

    Misrepresentation during intelligence
    They're willing to take a project for low contract pay from companies, so it is reflected in your pay

    Advice to Management

    Be selective with projects, and increase the salary
