      Lots of exposure if you are willing to work. Bosses can be supportive Lots of courses to improve yourself Promotion can be based on merits instead of scholarly role Centralised area TOP management gives good direction Lots of resources to tap on.

      Cons

      Dealing with public takes on a different hat and can be really nasty Can be overwhelmed with work (depends on how you look at it)
