      Pros

      Pay increases very quickly as you progress. You are surrounded by very smart people and learn a ton. Awesome benefits

      Cons

      Long hours (a "good" week is 65h, "normal" is 70-75, crunch is 80+) are not for everyone.

      Great colleagues, great training, great salary

      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.
