    Pros

    The company culture and work atmosphere is unreal. Everyone is friendly and there is such a close knit culture about the company. It's like being a part of a rapidly expanding family.

    Cons

    My office faces the North side of the building and it gets chilly in the winter. The elevators are also a bit slow.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep the pizza parties and other company events coming, they're amazing.
