Great environment for self starters

ProsIt was a great place for growing and championing new ideas. The teams I worked on were highly collaborative, and the people I worked with were brilliant.

ConsToo many of the legacy employees (those there pre-2000), were entrenched in old-school thinking and were more interested in playing politics in-order to "avoid rocking the boat."

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
