    The pros to this job are:
    Fun environment
    Great mission
    Good benefits
    You are valued
    Even the people at the top care about you

    Cons

    The job is physically demanding, I'm not in incredible shape, but I can keep up. You have a lot to balance also, but if you're organized you should be fine.
