    Pros

    Salary and benefits. Naturally, full time work lets you keep your full time salary and accompanying benefits-both of which you'll need more than ever with a new baby.

    Cons

    If your going to work with customers your have to know how to handle situations and just plain like people otherwise the cons out weight the pros.

  3. Fast paced environment, lots of expectations.
