    Pros

    - Extremely competitive pay (definitely at the junior and mid level; can't speak for senior level)
    - Diverse workforce; company doesn't just pay lip service to diversity and have numerous strong internal groups to support diversity
    - Very little office politics; very cordial office atmosphere that feel like a family
    - Working with very smart and talented colleagues from elite universities from US, Canada, Europe and Asia
    - Numerous and very robust flexible working programs, including LOA, externship, non-profit fellowship
    - Tons of travel to different cities (could be considered a con depending on stage of life) along with generous travel perks

    Cons

    - Work-life balance can be brutal during projects
    - Very obvious that despite claiming otherwise, company treats internal IC-building projects as second class projects. Senior managers regard IC projects as "side of desk" projects (and thus something to do just to check the box) and junior employees regard internal IC projects as extremely unglamorous. If anyone is working on internal IC projects for too long they are considered to be "not doing well".
    - Expect to travel to a lot of middle-of-nowhere cities for months at a time
    - Staffing process is not as transparent and systematized as the company claims. A lot of projects are informally filled by partners and consultants that already know each other
    - Office culture has become more "corporatey" in the last few years; a lot more process, approvals, etc.; some perks have been cut back
    - Not quite in the same tier as MBB yet

    Advice to Management

    - Need to update the recruiting strategy a bit, especially in Canada. Think of recruiting more as a marketing and branding exercise, rather than a sales exercise. This means really understanding what attracts top undergraduates from elite schools to consulting (prestige, pay, lifestyle), and introduce the OW brand earlier than 3rd year. MBB tend to be the first consulting brands to be introduced to students and that give them an instantaneous advantage

    - Really invest in IC and change the company culture that currently make employees feel like working on internal IC projects is a career killer.

    - Endeavour to create a "small office" feel; this means giving employees more informal perks, more leeway to organize events from bottom-up (and accompanying budget allocation)

    - More frequent alumni engagement events
