    Pros

    Can learn a lot because you juggle many projects at one time.
    The people are great and like a family and will pitch in to help out.

    Cons

    Lots of hours.
    The better you are, the more your work.
    Don't retain grade A talent due to lack of long-term development programs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Really invest in star talent, don't just offer lip service.
