    Pros

    Great benefits and decent compensation.

    Cons

    There is no work / life balance. Be prepared to work hard - I had heard the cons from former employees, but decided to form my own opinion. Everything you hear about being overworked is true. If that's what you enjoy, then A&F is your place.
