Pros

Mostly smart, competent, and friendly people.
Leading-edge technology.

Cons

Depending on who your manager is, your work life can be a dream or a nightmare. Regardless, overtime is commonplace. You may think your initial job offer is fair or even generous - but be aware there is a price to pay - namely quality time with your real family.
