    Pros

    Opportunities to make a difference in a company where you can still have an impact versus being just another number

    Pros

    If you get into the right org with the right manager it can be a great place to grow your career. Motivating to work for a company with incredible brand recognition and global impact.

    Cons

    Your experience is highly dependent on your org and manager. Certain orgs are super political with leadership jockeying for more control, ownership viability. Things change quickly so one minute a team is the silver bullet for growth and the next it's dissolved.
