    Pros

    There is the potential to do good work that will have a positive impact on a large number of people.

    Cons

    Internal politics is crazy. My executives give us instructions on how to move forward with our internal clients then when the clients push back, our execs roll over. Completely thrown under the bus.

    Advice to Management

    Stop re-orgs. You're jerking people around and playing with their lives.
