    Pros

    Steady paycheck and ok benefits. Opportunity to continue education and work at the same time, while it can be covered at no cost or reimbursement.

    Cons

    Everyone is equal, Unless you don't have a backbone. Can be the hardest working employee while everyone else slacks, but at the end everyone gets the credit. Poor management skills but as long as they are spineless they are great.

    Tried this for years, it gets no where.
