    Pros

    I loved my team and everyone I interacted at GWL was nice.

    Cons

    GWL is going through a transition and it felt like it. Senior leadership was clearly trying to figure out how to make sure that GWL was positioned well today and in the future, but it was difficult to agree upon the approach and drive the change required. Everyone was on board, in theory, but making progress on new projects was a challenge.
