    Pros

    Meeting new and different people

    Cons

    in picking: pick paths were iffy...rates were always harped on weekly!
    breaks were short (i.e. a 15 minute break was really a 10 min. break)
    too much favoritism
    if you hit above/beyond rate or are trying to move up w/o kissing up, its hard to get recognized.
