    Pros

    Loved the people I worked with. Great benefits.

    Cons

    Review model. I was competing with other admins at my level for a good review. In my organization you had to watch your back, keep track of your peers slip ups and their accomplishments to provide feedback for review time. When I returned from maternity leave I was surprised by my review score.

    Compensation could have been better.
