      Pros

      Development Culture - you’re encouraged to really own your own development and the opportunities you see and go after. Commitment to work/life balance. Investor in People - they hire brilliant people and recognise individual talent. It’s an amazing place to work - even on zoom.

      Cons

      Can’t think of any cons! They expect a lot but give back in what their employees give.

      Cons

      - Process and red tape is ever growing and killing the company - Takes forever to do anything (can be frustrating) - Pay can slip behind market if you don't get offers from other companies - Have to learn to use proprietary tooling (non transferable skills) - Performance management promotes bad behaviours - If you're experienced, this place will drive you mad
