    Pros

    It is a huge organization. You can get good experience in international development.

    Cons

    But in order to do so you have to find a mentor, and the probability of finding a good mentor does not always depend on your qualifications.


  2. You have to have connections to get projects as STC

    Pros

    The pay is good for an STC - as my first real job in the US, I got a really good offer. I can work from home - I don't know if that's for every STC, but since I was hired through a friend who also happens to be my boss, I can work remotely. Mentoring program for young professionals. An awesome company if you prefer international peers. I like that most of the people are ESL, so my English is not judged that often.

    Cons

    No access to additional projects. People have to know you to offer you more projects. It's hard to network within the company.
