A pay raise is my biggest advice I can give, as it is a little demoralizing knowing how hard we work for less than market average. There should be freedom to be more creative in some cases.Pros : You get to work on some big public cases, which is always good for progressing your career. The environment is both fun and friendly. The good bonuses make you want to work harder.
