    100% 401K match would be better than 50%. That's nitpicking though.

    Pros

    Easy to manage work life balance, which is generally difficult in Bay area companies. Freedom to express your view and implement the same.
    Top management keen to work with ground level employees

    Cons

    Management change has caused some anxiety among the employees. But off late that is settling down. I suppose it should change for good.
