    Pros

    Great development opportunities. You have to be willing to sell yourself to your manager and those above but if you perform well and make your professional goals known, they will help you advance.

    Cons

    Memphis, TN is the center of the universe. If you intend to enter upper management you must be willing to move to Memphis. Also pretty traditional culture and behind the curve when it comes to technology. Though, they are making good advances in this area.

    Pros

    I liked that the businesses are changing with the ever changing landscape. They have done a great job through the transformation year to set themselves up for the future. Good pay and opportunities. Cost of living in Memphis enables this to be a good opportunity for families.

    Cons

    You must want to live in Memphis, TN. This is where the corporate office is.
