Pros

Smart, focused colleagues. Excellent benefits. Challenging environment (in a positive way). Good products that are well received by clients. Pantry is nice.

Cons

Expect some late nights! Open seating plan takes some getting used to, but at least it is entirely equitable (CEO sits in the open as well). No company cafeteria (but I hear that is changing).

Advice to Management

With the (recent) exception of the CEO, most senior executives are "lifers" so 'best practices' at other firms is often ignored.
