    Pros

    Eager, go-getters get noticed, encouraged and rewarded. If you are smart, confident and outgoing, it's a great environment.

    Cons

    If you're not good at self-promotion or awkward in large groups, it can be easy to get lost in the crowd.

    Advice to Management

    Don't forget that even though someone is not in your face bragging about the good work they've done that day doesn't mean that person is not doing an excellent job.
