      Pros

      Good company benefits and perks. Staff shop, pension.

      Cons

      You can be the very best at what you do, but there is no immediate recognition of talent. Career plan is not well laid and as a result one can feel disheartened. High staff turnover means that much of the great potential within the company is lost. There are wider opportunities within the business but it is difficult to get there.
