      Pros

      Lots of opportunities to learn. You're kind of thrown in so figuring it out become easy. I like that you're not really micro managed. You can do your job.

      Cons

      You can do your job but they tend to shy away from new and forward thinking ideas, especially if it costs money. Growth and development seems to be for a select few people. It's unfortunate because they lose some really great talent because of this.

      Pros

      Lots of opportunity to learn, although amount of knowledge you can gain is limited. Always need to hire external people to do root cause analysis because people arent ver techinical.

      Cons

      Lots of negative trade off for saving cost Everything is done based on trial and error instead of analysis and comparing directions to take Very hard to implement a change, stuck in there ways, get ignored easily
