    Pros

    You are given the opportunity to take something and run with it and if you do well you're asked to take on more. Senior leaders do not hesitate to give positive feedback. It's a very positive environment. At Grace they trust you and treat you like an adult.

    Cons

    I have none right now. I could not be happier. I have a great commute, pay, benefits, coworkers and job content.
