    Pros

    Fast paced and constantly changing processes
    Good benefits that include use of onsite gym

    Cons

    Long hours and not very flexible - must be available 24/7
    Difficult to get vacation approved
    Not much room for advancement and limited career path discussions
    Difficult to move to other departments as all requests to apply to other positions require manager approval and they are often denied
    Not very female friendly, all upper management is male and it's a "good ole boy" atmosphere
    Management thoughts and ideas cannot be challenged

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the lower level professionals not just upper management as they don't always tell you what is really happening.
