    Pros

    good benefit, and packages.. You can learn some good stuff.

    Cons

    In many teams, the manager is the czar who is powerful to control everything, of course including the performance review. Be careful, don't annoy the manager, otherwise, you will be very painful no matter how good your performance is.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please scrutinize the behavior of the managers in some teams.
