    You can set your schedule to meet your needs. You get an alarm code and can work in the middle of the night or on weekends if you wanted to.

    Okay to get your feet wet out of college or self-education. Some people are good to work with. Meaningful work on a system that saves lives every day.

    Dead end for career if you want to move on eventually. Most skills aren't transferrable. No coding standards. No best practices.

    When morale issues are expressed, listen. Take care of your people, not just your customers.
