      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Colleagues are among the brightest you will find anywhere. Training opportunities are abundant, both in-person and online. Outside of banking, you won't find a better salary at a younger age. Exit opportunities are very attractive.

      Cons

      Work-life balance. If you manage to get staffed on the right projects, you'll work very hard during the week but you can get your weekends mostly off.

      Pros

      Comp is generous Rich development experience - you'll learn lots Tries really hard to get things right from a people perspective Great benefits Premium perks and experiences (when in office)

      Cons

      People are hit and miss - some amazing people/mentors, others that aren't pleasant to work with A very 'work hard' culture - not egregiously so, but hours are more often rough than not D&I progress is happening but being carried by a small group of people - need the masses to engage way more
