    Pros

    You get to meet a lot of people. Work associates are usually more like family. Good compensation. Advancement opportunities. 401k. Health insurance. Work day goes by quickly if you keep your tasks up, there's always something to do.

    Cons

    Long hours for some. You need to be able to balance work and family. Sometimes others get the final credit for something you did, and sometimes you give the credit to someone else. Check more on your upper management, not micromanaging the harder working associates.
