      Good place to learn, not so good place to grow

      Business Outlook

      Pros

      - big projects, big clients - people are really nice, there are some blown up egos but 99.9% of people you meet are super friendly and easy to work with - if you're early in your career, this is a great place to learn, you'll find yourself working on awesome, interesting and exciting projects, great place to build your CV

      Cons

      - very little career growth especially in the junior/associate roles, promotions seem arbitrary and opaque - diversity is a non-existent, unable and unwilling to address the actual structural diversity issues in the company - low base salaries with non transparent pay reviews - no company culture/values/mission, at the end of the day we are a vendor and we do what clients demand us to do
