      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Opportunities to work with Fortune100 companies. Training when not at a client site. Some good trainers and support available to you. Learning resources like LinkedIn Learning available on site/client site.

      Cons

      Some trainings lacks quality. Payroll makes mistakes more often than you'd expect/like. It's decent pay, but the first two years, the pay is very low for the job in comparison with what you will get paid in year 3 onwards or what you will get paid elsewhere.
