    Pros

    It was a great first job with competitive salaries for graduates

    Cons

    After working with the company for years, you realize internal promotions and opportunities are difficult as they first look to hire from the outside. Although not completely unheard of to be promoted internally, we saw a lot of outside hires when there were plenty of qualified and experiences internal candidates.
