Pros

Exposure to problems and skills that you would otherwise need to climb the corporate ladder for 10 years for. Even at the business analyst level, you are pushed to interact and lead clients instead of sitting in a room doing analysis and finding data

Cons

The apprenticeship model could really be hit or miss. For a new hire who does not already have the right mindset of humbly learning from mentors or just got unlucky, the firm can be a tough place. There are few opportunities to learn the ropes outside the apprenticeship model
