      Pros

      Many different areas and disciplines for limitless growth. Hard work and interest allow for more opportunities. Decent pay with great benefits.

      Cons

      Depending on the job, it can quite demanding and taxing. Not a progressive company, thus unsupportive if abnormal request or non-conventional idea that don't have a policy. Promotions based on time and tenure, rather than quality of work.
