    Pros

    Lots of opportunity in various fields and locations. Generally a progressive atmosphere that allows for diverse thought and growth. Opportunities to develop as long as employee is disciplined.

    Cons

    Large, multi-national organization that sometimes finds itself a little disconnected from other branches of the organization. Effective collaboration and communication sometimes suffers, which is common for organizations of this size and complexity.
