    Pros

    It's a convenient location for professionals that live downtown. There are plenty of opportunities for personal growth and advancement. Most people that work there are friendly and enjoy what they do. You are encouraged to carve out your own career path and management is encouraged to help you achieve those goals; the onus is on the employee to make that happen.

    Cons

    The benefits aren't that great and the pay is probably pretty average. It's easy to find yourself overworked; there's plenty of work to be done and I don't think the company staffs enough people for any department I've ever worked in; the company definitely tries to do more with a lot less. I don't have much bad to say about the company other than some anecdotal events.
