Pros

Huge breadth of job opportunities for those working at the HQ location.

A lot of momentum with company direction with new leadership

Job demands can be taxing during cyclical periods (varies a lot by role/function)
Simplification efforts don't always take roadblocks out of the way
Redundant layers of tools, processes, and approvers slows the pace of business
