    Pros

    -Feeling of community: You can draw on the knowledge others to help you solve a problem or present an idea. You are never 'on your own' unless you want to be.
    -Support to reach your potential: The people here want to see you succeed. They will give you plenty of opportunity to show your worth and grow into new roles.
    -Training: This company actually encourages training and gives you time to do it.

    Cons

    -Traveling: There can be a lot of travel. In fact up to 90% travel should be expected.
    -Long hours: Some projects are can be short but require the most of your time while you are there.
    -Demanding: Some projects are augments and require you to support what is in place or planned. Other projects require you do the job from a - z and put your best effort first.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management shares overall company direction and invites constructive input from everyone. I have found them to be available most of the time and willing to listen. My Advice? Keep that 'open door' policy in place. Not everyone feels comfortable going to the Group Manager or Director but it's good that avenue is available should the need arise.
