    Pros

    Select leadership is open, flexible, and understanding. Organizational culture and attention to structure are thoughtful, authentic, and an overall great learning experience. If you are looking to own your own projects with independence and responsibility, this is a great place to learn rapidly and fail fast...a pretty good environment.

    Cons

    Professional development and learning is dependent on your team and the team's ability to mentor. Expectations are definitely unrealstic and certain leaders are not as open to outside opinion as they claim to be.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Show that you are open to conflicting opinions, not just with your words, but in your actions.
    Realize that unrealstic goals put a strain on morale.
