    Pros

    You get your birthday off

    Cons

The end.

    Pros

    - Really great start-up feel - lots of collaboration & team support - Founders very much involved in the running of the day-to-day business - Nice size with approx 100 employees - London and NYC offices - High value placed on work-life balance - flexi-working, working from home, travel perks, support for individual needs/circumstances

    Cons

    - Small size & start-up mentality means it's best for employees who enjoy trying their hand at a range of tasks & projects rather than those only interested in focusing on a very specific niche

    Nasty CEOs who only are in it for their own interests, bad and unfair treatment of staff, huge favouritism, no HR, fake people , expect you to stay behind and work late for free - don't care about your work/life balance... etc etc
