    Pros

    Good experience and exposure. Good opportunity to work with the best in the industry.

    Cons

    The NY office culture is very competitive, so much so that you don't have a nice feeling working there. Everyone is very territorial and would gladly step on you to get on top.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of the reference culture and assess candidates based on their experience and caliber.
