    Pros

    Decent Pay, Great Benefits, Very exciting business to be in.

    Cons

    Career growth is directly tied to relationships, not performance or contributions. Senior Leadership is very disconnected from the day to day operations.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Far too many managers/directors are decent individual contributors, but terrible managers.
