    Pros

    Tremendous opportunity to understand many facets of business operations as rotations and movement is encouraged and expected. Work-life balance is what you make it and most groups allow you to own your schedule and elected balance.

    Cons

    While this is a super company, it is a large organization that can stumble with swift market moves. Compensation lagging what the market demands for the cost of living in this area.
