* etc, etc, etc....

Cons* If you aren't flexible / adaptable / entrepreneurial, you'll get run over...super fast moving environment!
* Can't wear jeans....hate that!
* VERY CANDID AND TRANSPARENT...can't emphasize enough...if you don't have thick skin, you'll hate it....they don't manage to your feelings (unless you sell).
* If you need hand holding, stay away.
