so many things are dependent on the group you get placed into. if you don't get a good group, you're kind of out of luck. need a PhD or advanced degree to advance to senior ranks.

Good place to start a career. Most people go on to do business school, PhD in Economics, law school, or another job.

Responsiblity ramps up very quickly. Steep learning curve and opportunities to develop technical skills, as well as interpersonal skills.

Downers

Hours can be bad, formal training can lack quality at times, pay relative to competitors is lower.

The opportunity for personal growth here are apparent. It's a great place to launch your career or spend a few years in between undergraduate school and graduate school. You'll have to make some sacrifices with respect to your personal life, but most people at this stage in their career are in the same position "paying their dues" to advance their career.
