      Pros

      insight into multitude of industries, exposure to senior clients and leadership, high levels or project responsibility early on, competitive salary, absolutely stellar personal development and mentoring systems

      Cons

      a lot of travelling, often not as heavily analytics/data modelling driven (if that is what you like), long work hours, risk of being staffed on projects that don't thrill you
