Pros

There are great opportunities for anyone who's interested, regardless of your title. The perks, pay, and benefits are also great.

Cons

Work/ life balance can be challenging. Also, there could be a better way to share best practices across the organization. Each department operates differently and they could benefit by better integrating best practices.
