    Pros

    Great benefits, good pay, and fun environment to work in depending on your team.

    Cons

    Vanity (though as a consultant or anyone who faces clients, you are subconsciously judged on your professional attire and how groomed you are, so this is not specific to TW).

    Advice to Management

    Keep investing in your people and treating them with dignity and integrity.
