      Simply an amazing place to work. Great People, Great Impact, Great Development

      Pros

      It is what is says on the tin, an amazing place where you get out as much as you put in. If you personal development - you get it. If you want to have a huge amount of impact - you can. If you want to work with great people - you will.

      Cons

      It can be a slog. High expectations from those around you will drive you to do amazing things, but also to work some long hours at times.

      Mixed experience, but the bad overshadows the good

      Jun 14, 2021 - Associate in Sydney
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Fast pace learning, travel and meal perks (pre-Covid), intelligent peers, chance to experience life in many big companies.

      Cons

      Zero work life balance (often worked 90+ hour weeks) leads to burnout, then hard to get sick or annual leave. No choice on industries or projects. Big diversity issue with senior management (good luck progressing if you're not Caucasian). Intimidation and bullying from project leaders is rife.
