      Pros

      - Very collaborative culture across the globe - Entrepreneurial spirit underpinning everything, willing and wanting to try new things and willing to take some chances to test things out (chances still relative to a generally conservative consulting firm)

      Cons

      - While a strong drive to create thought leadership across everything they do, struggle with with size and scale compared to major competitors at MBB firms - If part of a smaller Unit / region, building specialisation in field/industry/service offering is very difficult - Standard consulting cons, i.e. long working hours, high client expectations as set by over promising of sales team to begin with
