    Pros

    Schedule flexibility. Depends on the nature of your job, however from my experience, I've been able to achieve a successful career and still be present for the afterschool and in-class activities, sicknesses and other situations where a typical "in-office" 8-5 job would not allow.

    Cons

    Tyring to achieve a job change within a different organization within the company can be challenging.

    Advice to Management

    Invest more into the in-house career movement tool
