    Pros

    Challenging and fulfilling work
    Competitive compensation
    Great benefits - gym, daycare, on-site health center, excellent coverage for fertility treatment & adoption, and many incentitives to stay fit and give back
    Flexible schedule with work from home and other locations option

    Cons

    Can be long hours if you don't self-manage your time
    Not as much investment in outside professional development as I'd like

    Advice to Management

    Stay competitive with compensation... especially with top performers who should be a 1.0 or above comp ratio! Invest more in professional development for people... even make it mandatory to ensure development is taken seriously.
