    Pros

    Cons

    Being treated like kinder-gardeners, the supervisor talking down to you. Lots of back handed complements.

    Pros

    There are lots of big data sets with opportunity to apply machine learning techniques. There are many talented engineers making this a good place to grow technically.

    Cons

    There is an oncall rotation that all sdes share. It has pluses and minuses. You learn to build more robust systems, but at the expense of getting woken up in the middle of the night.
