    Pros

    Great atmosphere and people. Good vacation time & benefits.

    Cons

    Constant restructures. Unstructured work and roles. Inconsistent. Some roles are over worked and others under worked. High turn over. Career paths are weak. Can easily hurt your professional life if you don't take care of yourself.

    Advice to Management

    You say you are serious about talent development but I have yet to see it. Investing in people with attractive salaries is the best way.
