    Pros

    Interesting and challenging work. The company is focused on driving change in our industry which is a lot more interesting than just reacting to change. A lot of very smart and down to earth people. It is interesting to work for a company that makes products that are essential to so many things.

    Cons

    It is a very large company and there is a risk of getting lost in the shuffle. At times the work life balance can be very hard charging.
