    Neutral Outlook

    I have been working at Gilbert + Tobin full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Diversity is embraced and valued and there is a great parental leave policy. The firm is also flexible about leave of absences and return to work after leave.

    Cons

    The Firm has lofty aims and values and those are engaged with by some pockets of the firm but there are rogue groups. Without a firm ally you will not progress as there is no defined career path.
