    Pros

    Enables quick career advancement if you can stick with it for a couple years.

    Cons

    80-90 hrs/week of busy work. Little learning new of concepts, very little mentoring, and constant criticism. Some coworkers will throw you under the bus to get ahead. Very hierarchical - problem solving discussions are open for everyone to express their ideas, but at the end of the day, the most senior person in the room makes the decision. Performance ratings are based primarily on how much your management likes you, not as much on your output.
