    Pros

    You have the flexibility to do a wide range of different roles, and you are compensated well for it. Good managers will really help drive your career and open up opportunities.

    Cons

    Sometimes you get crap projects with bad managers (not the norm, but it happens). Staffing is broken where only networking will get you staffed and it is never local.

    Advice to Management

    Experienced hires should undergo some kind of skills test. So often, they can't use basic Microsoft tools.
