    Pros

    travel, co-workers, a sense of camaraderie through training.

    Cons

    way too many nasty senior mamas that think that they can assert their dominance over the newbies coming in. They brought newbies in for a reason.. to get rid of the old ones that no longer have a passion for what they do.
