    Great Environment, Interesting Jobs, Lots of Responsibility

    Pros

    Devcon gives you as much responsibility as you want/can handle. If you can handle large jobs/lots of responsibility, you will be on a team and a project that gives you that responsibility, and lots of room for developing your skills. You can get promoted fairly quickly by working hard and going above and beyond.

    Cons

    Can work longer hours than the standard 7:30am to 4:30pm (not necessarily required, but not uncommon). Jobs are staffed lean so you are always busy, but can be considered a pro because you get a significant amount of experience by being on a leaner team (not as many engineers on the job, so you end up doing a lot more work). This prevents you from being pigeonholed onto large projects where you only work on three trades over the span of 4 years, which is an issue at other companies.
