    Pros

    Self-empowered, fast paced, innovative, dedicated, highly motivated individuals

    Cons

    It's a challenging work environment because the majority of individuals that work there are out for one thing, the progression of themselves and own career, thus people can throw you under the bus if a fire arises.
