    Pros

    Love the people I work with and the freedom to solve problems with whatever technology available.

    Cons

    Limited mentorship. You have to want to learn to really get something out of the job. Upper management can be quite controlling with little idea of the job process and details.

    Advice to Management

    At least listen to what we have to say because we're the one who knows the work better than you.
