    Pros

    There is a lot of opportunity to grow within the company

    Cons

    Not much of training, they put you into the role and you have to figure it out on your own. Peers are not very helpful more quick to throw you under the bus for self interest. Environment is not the best. Team members don't care. Unrealistic expectations for all Managers and team members. The pay is great but not worth the work.

    Advice to Management

    Support your managers and give them the proper tools to succeed. Be realistic with the expectations. Be more aware of the actual opportunities.
