    Pros

    You have a hotline regardless! Sometimes not as helpful! Document everything! They can help with personal issues when you reach out! Animals come first!

    Cons

    DMs really don't know the inside drama and issues and don't care even when it's the GM. promotions are slow and corporate never communicates efficiently with potential canidates.
