    Pros

    Good working environment - first class office building

    Though PTAs are considered to be the bottom of the food chain, they deserve better treatment.

    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Strategy& full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    - Challenging engagements that give you diverse experience and make you attractive to future employers
    - Intelligent people (most of the time...)
    - Travel / expense perks (for those who like to travel)

    Cons

    - Shift to a culture of "work is life", long hours working with people who do nothing other than work and believe that is the way life should be
    - Work for works sake, working excessive hours doing unnecessary iterations or rework due to culture mentioned in the previous bullet
    - Lack of acknowledgement of the above bullets by leadership, even when situations are extreme and apparent (people developing health conditions due to long hours, etc.)
    - Negative / shady politics that impact your career opportunities based on upper management that you may have worked with

    Advice to Management

    - Get back to a culture of "work hard, play hard", roll your sleeves up and dig in on WHO is driving negative change and determine HOW to fix it
    - Conduct more thorough and compassionate exit interviews to understand why employees are leaving in droves
