    Pros

    Versatile and fun mix of knowledge pool to develop good collaboration through shared technical knowledge and scenarios to learn from

    Cons

    Younger engineers need guidance if their initiatives are not outlined clearly. Noticable age gap with senior to mid level engineers which drives a roadblock for knowledge transfer
