      Pros

      This company is great to work at for a few years and then move on from. If you start out in ops, you will be given a great deal of responsibility very quickly, which is good for building your resume. But, be careful not to get burnt out here. My advice is, if you don't want to get burnt out and stay at the company long term, get out of the ops side after you get a few years of experience. Do what you can to network with people in non-ops departments and get those connections so you can switch over when job opportunities spring up. Also, if you can, try to avoid the ops departments/groups which have the highest rates of attrition. I won't mention which ones here, but ask your coworkers so you know (it's common knowledge). Also, if you're in ops, go out of your way to maintain a good relationship with your technicians. They are all generally good people who work hard and just want to feel like they're not getting the short end of the stick by management/engineering (which happens more often than you think). Managers will tend to think of them as a resource, though they are more than that. A good technician can teach you more about your job than a lot of the engineers (be it process or equipment).

      Cons

      Factory priorities frequently change and can cause immense stress depending on how well you can manage multiple tasks. Lots of random events tend to happen which are completely out of your control. You're still expected to deal with these events in an intelligent and well thought out manner, though also rapidly with absolutely no time wasted. It's a difficult balance to strike. Project work can be fulfilling, though can also be mundane and counterproductive to your professional development if your projects solely exist to satisfy arbitrary metrics.
