Good salary for which you pay with your soul

Well-paid job (even if slightly below industry benchmark), great exposure to top managementBehind shiney slides a dog-eat-dog culture with bad people management. Recognition is little available, promotions and individual progress strongly dependent on mentor (no transparency given)

Pros

Well-paid, interesting tasks, travel

Cons

Poor management qualities, no team culture, rat race

Good place for quick advancement, but not great growth in terms of company

If you just want quick advancement up the ranks, irrelevant of project topics or expertise, this is a great place. However, the organization does not really support participating and learning from different areas.

Pros

Not bad salary, tight team

Cons

Bad management

Great benefits, very hierarchical and political

- Some employees are clearly valued more than others - this was very clear when it came to services vs. consultants. - They are trying so hard to do well for their employees and in their industry but they are lying to themselves about their intentions, so they go in this terrible circle year after year. - Benefits were great - Work life balance is great if you are a low-valued employee, terrible if you are highly valued. I've seen people leave for medical leaves due to stress or it simply being their only way out. - No one trusts anyone

Pros

Free lunches, great travel perks

Cons

Work culture, high stress, long hours

Smart people, but almost no training

Fantastic company with brilliant people, but somewhat lacking in terms of training opportunities. Work-life balance is the other issue, though management seems to be attempting to work on that. Overall, great company, but you should walk in the door with most of the skills you need.

Challenging though egotistical environment

The company is based on status entirely. The environment was toxic and a matter of pushing egos and intimidating employees.
