      Pros

      Good package and benefits, company cares about employees' well-being especially during global pandemic, great work environment, innovative and stimulating. Has steadily grown year on year. Safe, stable employment. Amazing industry entry point for career.

      Cons

      Very fast paced, know what you want to do/where you want to go, don't always recognize and promote right talent from within. It's who you know and your network not work hard and feel valued. Higher management aware, but slow to make improvements, and losing established talent to competitors. A lot of management layers prevent people above from staying in touch with those on the ground.

      Pros

      Fast paced. Flexible working environment. Career mobility. Culture of care. Amazing Granta Park offices. Great benefits. Friendly people. Nice place to spend your working day.

      Cons

      Depends on who you are, if you don't like change, you'll hate it. Fast growth can mean some teams are very lean while jobs are filled.
