Pros

Excellent experience, great opportunity to advance your career, and opportunities to learn a variety of topics based on your interest

Cons

Very political, ambitious colleagues may down you to higher ups for gain (seen this with those of similar tenure and had lower tenure employees do the same when I was senior), company now tracks every thing you do via electronics and you may run into problems if your private political views are expressed on company email or phone are different than those in your office (e.g. You are a Christian conservative in Cali), keep you personal life absolutely private

    Pros

    Great place to learn strategy, problem solving and working with top executives in an extremely caring and supportive environment that constantly drives you to improve.

    Cons

    Requires a level of drive and aspiration uncommon among most executives - if you are looking to push paper and not apply yourself, then this is certainly not the place for you. The firm pushes you to learn constantly and this might not be a career for people looking for plush offices and large pension funds.
