    Pros

    Flexibility is very good.
    If you happen to get lucky to work under a good manager--things are good
    Career advancement and rewards if you are able to put in the extra time/work that is needed.

    Cons

    Some departments change management to often, not allowing enough time to get thorough connection with employees and departments needs.
    Some managers never create any connection with employees, left feeling like just a number instead of feeling like part of a team.
    At times felt more like an outside contractor instead of an actual employee.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Assign managers that have proper experience for the department they become responsible for.

    Train some managers to not treat employees like just a number, and the importance of creating a connection so more of a team/family connection.

    Don't reassign managers so often, seen in lots of cases manager moved on after only about 15 months.
