    Pros

    The analyst group you start with will be your good friends. Lots of company perks here and there. Though I would sacrifice for higher base salary. Long term prospects are very high if you can stick it out.

    Cons

    Quite a low starting salary compared to IT grads in other technology firms.
    Not all managers are the same. You may not get the travel opportunities they sell you during interview process.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give something more to the bottom end. Make sure all the lower end is covered, not just some. Try to avoid favoritism among teams
