    Pros

    Great opportunities to grow and get new responsibilities. Get formal trainings via classes and informal trainings from senior engineers and tech leads. All the pros to working in a big corporation.

    Cons

    Sometimes it takes long time to align with the priorities of the higher management. There are a lot of levels of management, getting re-organized almost periodically.
