      Pros

      The genuine people there Career mobility

      Cons

      The company is great when you first start and you are lulled into a sense of belonging, but the internal politics soon rears it's ugly head. There are a lot of legacy failures longer serving staff members try to cover up and when it is questioned they bite back. This was not just my department but company wide. There are a lot of battles between senior staff over petty topics as well.
