    Pros

    Nice perks: Can work from home from time to time, great gifts on your 5-10-15 years at work.

    Smart developers

    Constantly improving the release cycle and following the best practices.

    Cons

    Re-organization can happen frequently so this can be stressful.

    Depending on the above, you can have a manager that doesn't share the same vision or ideas at all with the previous one so you will need to adapt.

    Pros

    A fantastic place to start your career and learn from one of the most highly skilled staff in the industry. Great opportunities to pick or choose the work that you would be interested in and given responsibilities straight away. Good work-life balance with flexible work times as long as you finish the tasks assigned on time.

    Cons

    Benefits don't tend to go up with the amount of experience you gain. Depending on which segment you are on, there is little opportunity to go to different products, move up in the organisation and expand your horizons.
