    Pros

    Great experience & opportunities given. If you are uncertain of the direction you want your career to take there is a massive opportunity to move upwards and sideways. These opportunities must be taken/ spotted by you, they are not handed out to those who don't work for it.

    Cons

    Very poor training given and very little ability to develop unless you are committed to ensuring your career is on track. You have to really be able to maneuver in a corporate environment and understand how it works to progress.

    Advice to Management

    Give better training and developmemt opportunities. Unfair to rely on competition and the hope that the cream will rise to the top alone. Give your colleagues the opportunity to advance and show their complete and utter potential.
