    Cons

    It's a textbook definition of a toxic work environment.No one truly cares about your fulfillment and they pay for that continually. You are told not to bother being an agent of change. Efforts to improve processes die on the vine. Favoritism is the norm demoralizing everyone else, creating a double standard in the chain of command. This is exclusivity, which leads to competition, which leads to supervisors keeping their direct reports under their thumb. It's a big clique where merit almost doesn't matter. Place is full of eyes and ears for executives. It's impossible to be direct (one of their core values) and feel safe being so. No personal recognition, at least some are consistently overlooked. They call this place a family, while never making everyone feel a part of the family and then in a power move, will retaliate if they interpret you as disloyal, such as looking for new opportunities. So you're punished for "betraying" a dysfunctional family you were never part of to begin with.
