      Pros

      A lot of great people work here and are always willing to help no matter what.

      Cons

      Can be very slow at getting things over the line and projects could be faster and not go on as long. Very hard to progress further in the company as a lot of middle management jobs are with people looking to keep their career at that level.

      Advice to Management

      Look to make things quicker
