      Pros

      Great place to work, colleagues are intelligent and friendly. A true 'caring meritocracy' as the firm preaches

      Cons

      Leadership (partners and above) are mediocre in this region. Many of them got there through back scratching or banding together in "mafia -like" behaviour, not as meritocratic as other offices.
