    Pros

    Great exposure to different technologies
    People for the most part are great and happy to help you
    Opportunities to drive change and make a difference

    Cons

    Lots of decisions driven by the US - other regions simply execute
    Some senior managers not up to the job - have been promoted simply because they have been there so long
    Whilst the UK office is nice, the location is not great
