      Pros

      The work is interesting and the product is fantastic. You get to meet a variety of customers with some fascinating use cases. The company tries to do well by its employees, for example days off due to Covid and investing heavily in Diversity initiatives. Management in my area of the business are supportive and you feel they have your back. The pay is above average.

      Cons

      Work-live balance: you can expect to spend a lot of time working evenings and weekends.

      Pros

      Flexible working hours, excellent culture supported by great colleagues, and global leaders in parental leave.
