      Pros

      Paternity leave policies are fantastic

      Cons

      Engagements are becoming longer (i.e. from 3mo to 6mo on average) and increasingly focussed on program management Remuneration is now on par with some corporate and even government jobs, therefore, not attracting the best talent anymore

      Pros

      Great benefits, managers care about employees, mostly impactful work, and an extremely steep learning curve.
