    Pros

    The people are good; the clients are broad and interesting. If you take advantage of travel you can get some good perks.

    The work life balance is an ideal; but applying in practice is non-existent.

    Advice to Management

    I think a salary and cultural mindset shift is in order to be able to compete in the industry.

    Pros

    Very professional environment. The partners in the office where I worked seemed to genuinely care about the employees working there.
    There are also some high caliber talent that you can learn from.
    The pay is reasonable, but, like many other places, it's better if you are able to negotiate a good salary at the beginning.
    Employees are pushed to work hard but not at all costs. It's a good balance (and there is flexibility) if you know how to organize your work effectively.

    Cons

    It's a global firm, which makes it prone to risk globally. Sometimes, it seems like you're fighting the risk management team at the firm just to be able to get the work approved but there may not be a lot of other choice.

    Advice to Management

    The message about global strategic directions should be clearer given the size of the firm.
    The implications of being independent need to be more clearly explained during the hiring process.
