    Not many pro's -

    Thats all for now - not room for much

    Cons

    Leadership doesn't really lead or manage - expectations are to be understood almost by magic and mind reading tricks for what they want you to do (at all positions it seems) seemed like this across company
    No encouragement of bettering self outside company offered courses
    bit of a good old boys club
