Pros: advancement for those seeking more responsibilities.
Cons: sometimes, not enough engineering was completed before actual productions "runs" were established.
During my tenure, many career advancement opportunities were given to me. I was able to learn all aspects of their production environment, as well as manage many different departments. The company decided to upgrade their production software to SAP, and I was on the initial implementation team. This gave me the chance to learn the SAP system, which ultimately offered other business opportunities outside of Kimball.
