    Pros

    Great benefits
    Rewards based on merit
    Excellent benefits
    Great people to work with across the United States and globally
    Good options for mobility upwards and into other departments

    In the beginning, the working days are 13 – 15 hours per day. That eases over time though; as your team gets to know who you are and the work you contribute.
