    Pros

    Lots of very smart people; interesting, real world problems; lots of resources and data. Great benefits and employee-friendly atmosphere. Transparent review process.

    Cons

    Lots of programming overhead make some simple tasks very difficult. Everyone spends a lot of time at work. They have family-friendly policies, but it seemed like the culture was to work not just very hard, but also very long. The pressure to ship code means you might have a lot of all-nighters.
