    Pros

    The company has some really extremely talented and passionate employees. Benefits are great.

    Cons

    Depends on the division of the company but upward movement of career is hard to get unless you land in a division that makes lots of revenue

    Advice to Management

    Be open to taking a chance on employees who are looking to move up, they may not be the perfect fit but eager employees are willing to work hard and learn to fill the roles they are seeking.
