-Honesty is part of the culture - people want to do the right thing
-You get to do real projects
-Results oriented - You have freedom to do what is necessary to get stuff done due to...
-'Inverted Pyramid' organizational structure - decision-making power comes from lower level employees
-A cafe that emphasizes on healthiness with very reasonable prices
-It's a fortune 500 company with 100 years of history
