    Pros

    Great benefits, good people. Lots of people are willing to help you out and go above and beyond to help.

    Cons

    No real cons, standard higher up uncoordinated/politics. Communication and coordination is tricky. You will have to gather all requirements on your own. Just make sure you have a good relationship with manager and team and you will be ok.

    Advice to Management

    Take time to properly shape employees. Don't rush things into prod. Please have more realistic dead lines.
