    Pros

    There were lots of cafeterias around the campus and a grocery store with dim sum for lunch right across the street.

    Cons

    You will most likely be in a cube farm that is dark. Even if you put a lamp on your desk it is still dark. Write code, code review, commit, and repeat.


  2. Good non-salary benefits and work-life balance even if the salary is not the best in the business.
