      Pros

      It's a firm with a lot of wellness programmes. They have specific people working on things such as diversity, work-life balance, etc. We also have networks for young professionals, LGBT, women, parents, etc which I don't see in other firms.

      Cons

      Hours can be terrible. The work can be dull at times, depending on which department you are in.
