      Friendly but you'll have zero work/life balance

      Pros

      Good remuneration, intelligent team, and interesting area of economics.

      Cons

      Long hours, you are expected to work whenever they ask. A standard working day is until 8pm. Weekends are not unusual. No co-ordination between different project managers so nobody monitors how much you are working. They have good intentions to look after you, but in practice, not very effective.

      Steep learning curve, but opportunity to work with some very talented people means you are constantly developing new skills.

      Hard work and long hours , but to be expected and engaging nature of work means unlikely to get bored.
