    Pros

    Work load is reasonable. Peers are active and helpful. Manager is not very pushing. Agile development process is effective and efficient. The place is good. Near Lake Union and Seattle downtown, very convenient.

    Cons

    No free snacks. The office contains too many people. Comparing to Google, the salary is not so high. No free parking lots. The weather is not very good in Seattle, since it often rains.

    Advice to Management

    My manager is good, giving you reasonable flexibility.
