    Pros

    - Exciting unique project, one to be proud of - Great talented engineers and other professionals to learn from - Good collaboration environment, tight knit team - Very little politics and selfish interests interfering at working level, for a public sector project of that size and impact - Quite agile and flexible with minimum bureaucracy... again by public sector standards - Company values actually felt genuine enough, which is pretty rare

    Cons

    - Not allowed to give bad news - Few opportunities for internal progression, considering the timescales of the project
