    Pros

    Everyone knows where you work. Your resume will always get a second glance. Global future forward acceptance standards. In the end - incredibly hard work will get you where you want to be.

    There are “haves” and “have nots”. You gotta be willing to work for it. Your health will suffer.

    Advice to Management

    Those who worked their way up the ladder - know they don’t owe management anything. There’s been a lot of abuse over the years, it’s important to take a moment to acknowledge the bullying, the boys culture, the belittling - all for the passion for the faith that through the power of sport will allow us to overcome. It’s your choice to decide if sport has that power.
