    Pros

    It was always busy with new and different events. It was never dull or borrowing. Your time spent with other managers was insightful and you had a feeling of ownership of your work.

    Cons

    Long Long hours that some times felt like day's turned into weeks. The longer you worked there the more say you had .

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire from outside more and fine more managers that had experience.
