    Pros

    Great pay. Traveled the world. Worked with a lot of good people who would do anything for you.

    Worked in places I never wanted to be in. Worked with too many people who spent their time keeping their knife sharp so they could plant it deeply in your back.

    Advice to Management

    You should follow the path of integrity. The path to ruin is paved with half truths from specious employees.
