    Pros

    - International travel - Generous expense budget - You power point skills will improve (that's mostly what you'll be doing)

    Cons

    - The work-life balance is appalling. You are expected to work stupid hours for no extra money, people regularly worked until 1:00 or 2:00 am - but it's ok because you get a free dinner! There is a culture of performance being measured by how much you produce, not the quality. - The main goal is not to do good work, but to rip off the client where ever possible. - Sociopathic consultants and managers telling experts (developers, designers, researchers, and product managers) how to do their jobs. - An underlying current of sexism and favoritism. I saw some awful behavior from consultants (bullying and sexist comments) which was excused because a 'partner liked them' so nothing was done. - The organization is mostly made up of has-beens and charlatans who are good at selling. While there were some very smart and talented individuals, they are few and far between. - Most of the "Technical people" are hopelessly out of their depth and only care about building whizzy prototypes that don't work in the real world.

    Pros

    - an organised, efficient company in terms of operations - it makes such a difference when you arrive on your first day to find there's a week of planned introductions, inductions, and all your equipment/desk is ready and nicely set out for you, with a welcome lunch to boot. - everyone has been friendly and helpful since joining - lots of internal nice things for employees - 2 day retreat, weekly company updates/drinks, training, step/squat challenges, a really nice company culture - interesting tech with a purpose - amazing offices (which do make a difference to how you feel at work)

    Cons

    - so far I can't really think of any. oxford circus is the closest tube station which is always very busy?
