    Pros

    - work life balance is a focus
    - great benefits

    Cons

    - pressure to learn and keep up to date with new training modules, but urged to rush through rather than take the time to learn. Encouraged to let modules play while you are still working so you don't really focus on it.
    - not a lot of roles available to be promoted and when there is one, there is a lot of competition. Basically have to wait for someone to quit to get promoted.
