    Pros

    The most amazing people and pretty good culture here. Great flexibility and work life balance. Very Supportive to help you grow into other roles.

    Can be a bit political. The company gets in its own way and can be old school which makes it not as agile to make necessary changes.

    Pros

    Company is a great place to work with ability to communicate across and up the company. If you can communicate through story telling and insights driven content, you will do very well. If you only communicate based on hunches, with nothing to back it up, you're note going to be effective.

    Cons

    Can sometimes take a little while to make decisions, but that is being cleared up with new organizational structure
