      Pros

      Ethical company that values behaviors as much as results. Hard work and innovation determine your success, not politics. Company offers annual performance based bonuses that are quite generous.

      Cons

      Not really a con per se, but if one is not willing to work hard, this is definitely not the company for you, especially in IT.

      Pros

      Management very calm and collective which echoes down the whole chain of command. Company is ambitious and going places. Lots of good benefits and summer working hours.

      Cons

      Whilst benefits are good, headcount seems to be low. Some areas need more resource.
