    Work life balance, huge variety of projects, good career progression opportunities

    Bureaucratic, marketing-driven instead of product or engineering driven, not a great place to earn money as a permanent employee

    Focus on a few things and do them well, cut costs to provide cheap energy to customers and build products that manage customers' energy for them automatically
