    Pros

    Great technology and innovation, great career development and training, opportunity to move around organisation, great career advancement if you put the work into networking. Fantastic healthcare benefits.

    Cons

    Not so much a downside, just something to be aware of, your career is your responsibility and progression is up to you.

    Pay rises are rare!

    Need to negotiate hard for flexibility in working hours.. but it is possible
