    Pros

    The department I worked for was extremely supportive of the work/life balance. I greatly enjoyed my supervisors and their professional attitudes, and they were flexible if I had an emergency or otherwise pressing matter during work hours.

    Cons

    The further down the ladder you are, the more you can get away with scraping by. Some of my coworkers were not great at their jobs, and it was frustrating to be paid the same salary and have the same title as others who did half the work.
