      Pros

      - Excellent benefits and perks - Able to manage my workload independently - Immediate management has trust in my abilities - Opportunities in my team to grow or be promoted - Lots of work going on to improve diversity in a sector dominated by white men - Excellent response to COVID pandemic, immediate WFH instruction and freedom to choose when/where to work, provided with suitable equipment to continue WFH - [Pre-COVID] Ability to travel to offices globally was excellent - [Pre-COVID] Office environment is excellent

      Cons

      - Too much emphasis on San Francisco/California leads to less development and a lack of attention elsewhere (although this is improving in the past 1 year) - Lack of cross-team functional work leading to feeling of separation from colleagues - Lack of headcount allocation in my organisation - Lack of critical decision making within senior management
