    I have been working at NAWC full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    You can have multiple careers all while staying in NAWC, and they even encourage exploration, learning other disciplines, and working in multi-functional groups.

    Cons

    They refuse to acknowledge what they lack and have a blind commitment to the past. Despite verbally encouraging progress their actions say that they do not value creative thinking and some managers seem to basically want you to shut up, keep your head down, and stay the course, even when presented with arguments that it will end in disaster. Mediocrity is expected, there is not work-life balance if you actually... are good at what you do, and there is a culture of nepotism, misogyny, and racism that some of upper management are frantically trying to clean up, but it is so deeply entrenched that some locations loose the majority of their hires within the first 2 years.
