    We have a chance to go to fun events, screening, people are very nice and friendly.

    Lack in development plan for people in junior roles. You can have the feeling of being stuck because you can't progress within your role or team.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    For senior Management: Invest in the talent that is around you - give ownership and responsibility to employees who have high skill sets and reward them accordingly.

    Pros

    Quality of life, flex hours and embrace of all walks of life make this place worth considering. Did I mention Summer Fridays?

    Cons

    It's a great brand to work on, and they know it. Will work you to the bone, but those who can cut it will rise to the top. Salary may be a little lower than some competitors....
