      Pros

      - Positive feedback, challenging you in a constructive way - The environment and interactions you have bring the best in people - You will be stretched but not stressed - You are dealing with the best possible people internally, at every level, truly great and rounded professionals, a pleasure to work with.

      Cons

      - Long hours could be draining (but there are plenty of options, encouraged by BCG, for recharging and gain back stamina)
