      -Great people, better hours and culture in this geography than what US/European offices are known for -Typically pure strategy projects, not transformation/ops (which other strategy houses do a lot of)

      Cons

      Limited travel due to nature of projects (if you like to travel) Emphasis on DD/PE work

      Pros

      More time in the office compared to other management consulting firms, (mostly) very genuine and impressive people, good salary, commitment to social impact work/volunteering. Social sports team.

      Cons

      Extreme hours at times (60-70+ hours) and some very challenging individuals to work for (a minority but which kills firm culture nonetheless). Stuart Jackson (who is no longer the Global MD) did not inspire.
