      Pros

      Interesting and varied project load, great people, work/life balance increasingly prioritized, decent compensation (taking into account work load), professional and structured approach to career development, great place to learn rigour and skills you'll need regardless of where you continue your career

      Cons

      Common with short deadlines that drives long hours to satisfy partners' (or ambitious project leaders') promises to clients, a varied project load also leads to some (much) less interesting assignments, at times high travel load

      Best company to work for

      Pros

      Fantastic company. Great atmosphere, great people, true focus on deep client impact. Unrivalled learning experience from the moment you join all through your career

      Cons

      The work is intense, clients are demanding. Not particularly a 9-5 job. Not a problem as long as you get satisfaction from your cases and as long as you are doing well, but can be tough in difficult client settings
