      Pros

      Everything!! You can tell this is a company that really cares, they are so big on work life balance it is so refreshing to see. Managers really care about your development and the progression path is clear and achievable. The culture is amazing, even from starting remotely I have felt so welcomed and a part of the company! The benefits are great, you find out new ones every week, they want to make sure you are at your best working ability and will help you in whatever way they can Not only is the company great but the product is just fantastic and a really fun sell, you really care about the merchants that use it and it is so fun spotting them when you are out and about

      Cons

      I cant think of any!!

      I don't get people who buy huge mcmansions in the exurbs in the middle of the friggin' nowhere, and then complain that their work commutes take too long. Guess what - you can safely "sacrifice" all that square footage you're never going to use for a smaller place closer to "civilization". And use public transit to commute.

      Surprisingly mediocre management which is disorganised and rigid. Great culture and benefits.

      Pros

      Good benefits and Work Life balance.

      Cons

      Square Payroll Tax management leaves a lot to be desired. Very unorganised, last minute changes and runs like a startup despite it's big size. There is no fluidity in process and most things take three times to be done if it ever gets done.
