    Pros

    Salaries, Benefits, Learning, Opportunities are awesome

    Cons

    Managers make or break your experience - no consistency across managers management skills, experience, expectations. Micromanagement is common.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Trust your employees, give them space to grow and make opportunities available to internal applicants. Improve WLB not just by talking about it.
