    Pros

    You wear many hats, so it makes you learn a lot of things. Between marketing, investing, sales, etc. Good bonus when you do get it.

    Cons

    Promotions are very slow and no raises.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    provide more clarity on other roles or ways to grow even if it is not in your own position.

    The company promises growth from within but you don't actually have too much career related growth opportunity.
