Pros

You always get to feel "I'm important", no matter what role that you are performing.
Fast growing company.
Company is run with foresight of 5 years.
Those who have been with the company for long and had been a performer, by this time would have made good money from stock options received.
Performance biased company.

Cons

A growing company - doesn't guarantee individual career growth.

We cant be promoting performing people every two years. Look for opportunities not to promote them.

Being a performer along doesn't guarantee individual career growth. You got to know how to lobby, and to give diplomatic feedback's rather than straight forward feedback's.

This year promotion certain business until alone got the maximum promotions.
The sales is not always have the knowledge about all service lines. Often sell only what they are good at.

You may be hired for one technology or engineering discipline, if there is no repeat work, irrespective of your experience your career will be at question, may be kept long idle, though they don't fire you easily (often just because of this situation, many got a different career growth, now are senior managers and general managers!).

Like anywhere else, negative publicity is very difficult to get over with. You will have to make a presentation of 15 minutes to a panel (of whom you may never knew them) to get promoted. Your two or more years of effort will be evaluated in another 15 minutes and your career growth will be decided in that 30 minutes. If you have not been promoted, you have to wait for another 12 month promotion cycle, in which you must have secured a performance rank of very good or exceptional. If there were no opportunities to perform or you missed to perform, you have to wait for another 2 years to be eligible for next promotion. Hence your career growth becomes a culmination of what kind of people you have on the promotion panel and what kind of relationship you have with them, and what perception they have about you, irrespective you what performance you have put. There are managers who every year go to the promotion panel and did not get promoted (4 years in a row!), because the panel is already biased that they are not fit for the role and that's why they didn't get promoted last year, with the same bias they do the evaluation and the result is obvious.

If you join the company in the first week of October, you will not get promoted in the next eligible cycle, as you would lack couple of days eligibility for number of days required to be eligible. There are many who did not get promoted because of this one factor.

Please don't open your mouth in "Open House" or apply for any internal opportunities get posted (if you don't get selected, your current manager considers you as if you have put papers and poor rank given, irrespective of performance, probably this is true for any organization). Talk only good in any internal feedback asked. You don't know who carries "what you said" and when uses it against you!

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Please bring in a positive culture. Right now its filled with lot of "don't wants" and "no" culture, and every thing is looked through a colored glass, the more time someone spent in the company the darker the glass they have.
Why not a "yes" culture? Why not create opportunities for internal candidates? Why not truly performance biased?
