    Pros

    Place that works with extreme pace and accepts mistakes as far as they are calculated risks.

    Cons

    Growth depends very much on team culture and they are diverse like a different organization across teams.

    Advice to Management

    As usual impeccable in paper but ground level implementation often goes through high handedness of individuals.
