      Pros

      -Overall a great company to work for. Good benefits, fair compensation, reasonable work life balance and employee support. -CEO is very forward-thinking and growth oriented but still prioritizes emoloyee well-being, for the most part this trickles down to middle-management. -Hard work is recognized. There ARE opportunities to move up if you’re able to separate yourself from the pack and go the extra mile.

      Cons

      -This particular role is pretty limited in terms of the scope of responsibilities and there is a lot of competition for upward mobility. -Middle management is not always aligned - certain supervisors are much stronger than others and the opportunities for growth are very much the luck of the draw with what team you are initially placed on.
