    Pros

    You get to work with amazing people - best in the industry. Everyone (well almost) is sharp, reasonable and pleasure to work with. One learns a lot. Fast paced work environment. Some people burn out and leave, others adjust. Pay is good and benefits are great.

    Cons

    Many groups are working in silos. No way around this though.

    Advice to Management

    Upper management is not very good at choosing middle management.
