    Pros

    - Great learning experience - Work within a huge organization - Have a mentor - Training opportunities - Get involved in different areas of the business

    Cons

    - Can sometimes be very stuck in their traditional ways - Need to be proactive in seeking out work - A lot of people sink into their job and get away with no doing much because it is such a huge company - Not too much work/life balance but this is very specific to what line of business you are in
