      Pros

      Strong sense of mission, delivering sense of purpose. Good opportunities for anyone that might like to go overseas. Grad programme is good if you get into the right client facing team. But get the experience, and move on.

      Cons

      An awful culture, few of senior leadership team are in their elevated positions down to excellence of delivery in their prior roles. Its a political snake pit. The harder you work on the things you are supposed to be working on, the more likely you are to go unrewarded. Meanwhile those who focus entirely on playing the game, and focus on their ascension up the career ladder, can spend vast amounts of time doing what they need to do to secure the phantom profile that is needed to hut the next heights. EI has proven time after time that the core values that they keep writing down, are just that, words. Real shame to see a once great organisation being destroyed from within by people who don't really connect with the mission, and definitely care little for their people.
