      Pros

      Great people to work with. Projects can be fun. They will take care of your family. Good benefits.

      Cons

      No room for advancement unless you have been there for a long time or if you are just starting out. Very political. Some upper management have really big egos and are blind to what is going on in department. Work long hours during seasonal events. Management is not in your corner.
