    Pros

    They offer good pay for the field. Their benefits are very affordable. Great work/life balance. Opportunities for advancement are available if willing to put forth the effort.

    Cons

    I can't really think of a lot of cons. If you are willing to put in the work that is expected of you, opportunities are made available to you.

    Pros

    Medical Benefits
    Basketball goal/ping pong tables
    There's a Starbucks in the office.

    Cons

    Management has no idea what is going on. The job gets progressively worse the longer I stay here. There's a myth of internal advancement opportunities and growth within the company, but in reality everyone either makes lateral moves or leaves the company. The management is under-qualified, while there is a bottle neck of worthy employees who know whats going on working underneath them and filling the gaps until one by one they leave for greener pastures.
