    Pros

    - High Hiring Bar - Your career is your responsibility - Gain a lot of experience in a short time - Autonomy is readily granted (just keep on track with your annual goals) - Great place for recent graduates to start careers

    Cons

    - Need to wear a lot of hats - Review process is short and intense - Some managers have little time to advise career development - High pressure environment with long hours expected (work-life balance can be difficult) Not a con, more of a note of advice: One needs to keep skills and qualifications on par or above the current hiring bar. Even with hard work and dedication, one can become no longer be qualified for the current job easily. Keep note of the qualifications of new colleagues and strive to equal them.

    Advice to Management

    Push the mentor program. Since mentors have chosen to volunteer their time to help others, employees might find it easier get career development help. Senior execs tell employees to contact their managers for career advice, however managers are usually very busy just keeping up and may not have time available.
