      Pros

      - Salary & Benefits are fantastic - Great home/work balance - Fantastic career progression with many different careers available from within one company. - Good management who keep you informed of what's going and, and genuinely value your opinion.

      Cons

      I do wish some departments would recruit for the correct behaviours, and not just because they have the right experience. Experience and skills can be taught, behaviours are inherited. Much better to have people with the right behaviours, rather than people who just know how to operate something.
