    Pros

    Coworkers were awesome, interesting cross departmental opportunities. Generally pleased with department structure but the manager level was largely inexperienced and half hearted.

    Cons

    The salary was low but consistently upped with each promotion. No major problems - management was palatable but the job itself was repetitive, quarter after quarter.
