    Pros

    People are diverse and very knowledgeable. Travel budget is unlimited with no restrictions on alcohol while entertaining.

    Cons

    Every 6 months they're re-organizing and changing their business model. People never get to excel and meet objectives. Constant changes and lay-offs becomes very daunting leaving people to wonder if they're next to be cut. Very high turn-over for this type of company.
