    Pros

    Great team, good benefits, good culture, lots to learn. The environment is conducive to mentoring and coaching which is especially great for new graduates.

    Make time for employees, not just direct reports but also other teams. Get to know people cross functionally. You may be able to find a great candidate for you next opening.
