    Pros

    Good food and some smart engineers

    Cons

    Impossible to grow a career here unless you have been here from the beginning. There is a group mentality here and change is difficult. A lot of the tech stacks are old and dictated by how stuff was done 6 years ago.

    Advice to Management

    If you are in the US to hire good engineers then treat them well otherwise retaining them will be diificult
