    Pros

    Interesting projects; lost of technical challenges;

    Cons

    Super frugal; can be mean; working space is small; you will need air to breath; PCs, keyboards, monitors, mices are low-quality and cheap things; You have only 1 monitor for working only. Even coffee cups don't have lids or insulators. Managers ask you about your progress on projects all over the time.
    High bar-raiser, difficult promotions

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    words to reduce frugality. care more about personal and family lives.
