    Pros

    Innovative environment gives plenty of opportunities for career growth

    Cons

    Nothing specific to JB comes to mind. Just the nature of the industry means potential job elimination due to changing business direction. Up to the individual to be able to re-market internally.

    Don't loose the family culture
