    Pros

    Team environment, freedom to achieve goals independently using unique skills and talents. Director gave me the freedom to climb the ladder and move into management roll as a reward for making strong choices within the team structure.

    Cons

    If you catch on to the freedom strings and lift yourself to a more rewarding roll you are celebrated. I've watched some folks flounder and it seemed to me that these folks were easily left behind as the support crew while the superstars shine on and reap the rewards.

    Advice to Management

    Develop a system that really takes care to watch over all employees and provides some focus on those that need more guidance to achieve success.
