      Pros

      SNC gives financial workers insight and visibility to a large array of processes and people across the enterprise. You get to understand program level detail, and company level detail, all in the same day.

      Cons

      The finance department shows little growth over time, and managers lack follow through on vision for how to make the department more than just some analysts building reports for managers. Growth prospects are so so, and work life balance can get hard during busy cycles and endless reporting asks from managers.
