    Pros

    Good health coverage, awesome amount of personal time off for travel, illness, etc. Fun company, fun staff

    Cons

    Pressure to party (not as much of an issue if you're younger), ridiculously low base salary, zero work/life balance

    Advice to Management

    It was such a mess when I left, I don't even know at this point.
