Pros1) You get to work with great people.
2) All the managers I had were wonderful to work with.
3) There was lots of opportunity for growth.

Cons1) Lots of "silos."
2) There were so many reorganizations that it was difficult to get momentum and traction on projects.
3) There seemed to be a lot of "make work" projects that were a waste of time.
