    Pros

    The constant change and growth provides for many opportunities to learn, grow and move around internally. If you express interest in other areas people will listen. The people are great to work with. Bonus payouts for 6+ years.

    Cons

    Work life balance can be a challenge if you let it; no one is going to make you go home. You need to be an adult, manage your workload and it won't be a problem.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You cannot keep adding businesses without adding staff and expect employees to be effective in their roles. Teams are lean - need to add some staff.
