    Cons

    -Management is really hard to connect to. You'll feel like a headless chicken at times
    -A lot has become unclear after the re-org. People at the bottom of the pyramid still does not know what direction does the management wants to go
    -Work will consume you. People in ops are overworked. 12++ shifts a day working on accounts accross the globe
