    Pros

    - Open meritocracy, with leaner bureaucracy and fewer obstacles to advancement - Less cutthroat, no up or out policy and a shift away from MBA's to quicker promotion - Truly global P&L with top-tier clients and content (strategy focus) means lots of cross-industry international opportunities

    Cons

    - WLB challenges, though with management working proactively to improve - Growing brand name in many markets, though consistently improving - Some pains (for example, shared services like IT) associated with being the subsidiary of a major public company

    Pros

    Fantastic highly driven people who care about each other and their work. The culture is fantastic, and while each office is unique the firm puts an emphasis on people first. The work is interesting and if you are interested in running with an idea or opportunity all you need is to find a partner and you can run with it.

    Cons

    Work life balance can be tough but that is across the industry (note: the firm makes an effort to be aware of the WLB and help when required). Benefits are subpar compared to other firms (e.g. MBB)
