      Pros

      Work-life balance is good Most hiring is done internally, so you rise very quickly

      Cons

      Pay is low in the early years (but lots of money once you move up) Information is sometimes withheld because knowledge is power and your superior wants to have more power than you. But maybe that was just my boss.
