    Pros

    Exposure to the professional industry before graduation and a never-ending stream of scenarios conducive to growing a backbone and character.

    Cons

    Justice is all but nonexistent, people who do wrong get promoted and people who get the short end of the stick in a scenario are often further punished for no reason other than being involved.
