    Pros

    Mentorship and growth of talent is integral. Very fortunate for the opportunity.

    Cons

    The work is varied and complex. I wouldn't say this is a con, but rather an opportunity for growth that you might not see at a company that doesn't challenge their talent to grow.

    Pros

    The people you work with are in the same predicament as you. Working here is marginally better than being unemployed.

    Cons

    You will work many hours that you don't get paid for. The company will lie to you about just about everything.
