    Pros

    Inspiring leadership / Great access to resources / Amazing benefits

    Sometimes you feel like there are not enough hours in the day to get everything done with such fast paced & quickly changing priorities.

    Continue to work smarter vs harder >> Trim down the # of meetings so folks can get work done during the day vs late at night.
