    Cons

    - Management culture is focused on projects, not people. Projects never fail, people can fall through the cracks.
    - You only work one project, if you and PM or client don't work well together, it can complicate your future with the company.
    - Culture at HQ office tends to align with project teams structure, work function or tenure. People can view this as being 'cliquish.'
    - You may work off-site in less then optimal conditions on legacy equipment and software.
    - HQ office needs renovations.
    - Hard to affect organization-wide change without having multi-year tenure.
    - Your mileage may very.
