      Pros

      very interactive. Get to talk with a lot of different teams and affect almost every aspect of your business. Great learning experience.

      Cons

      can be stressful during busy times for your business. one day may be almost boring but then the next day you have 15,000 things to get done asap. Need time management and prioritization skills to suceed.

      Advice to Management

      increase communication between teams. A lot of teams are in silos.
