    Pros

    The people at this company are fun, intelligent, and easy to work with. I left for the purpose of career advancement, but I could definitely see myself working for them again. Great experience!

    Office politics, like with most companies, can be aggravating at times. There is also little room in your schedule for internal learning.

    Take an interest in the people who directly report to you. Engage them on a personal and professional level every day.
