      Pros

      Good pay/benefit Hiring lots of fresh grad, good to be at the very young generation

      Cons

      favourism need to suck up to the right person hard working doesn't necessarily get paid off, just need to build relationship with the right person then you have unlimited opportunity to grow senior manager /managers all trying to suck up their own boss so don't expect someone will really back you up or 'be your mentor"
