Pros+ Launching new product - we're not just SL anymore.
+ Large scale, big data tech issues -- fun problems.
+ Individuals can have a big impact on the business -- not limited by role/lack of seniority.
+ Loads of autonomy.

Cons- Communication can be better from leadership.
- Remote offices feel unplugged.
- Slackers get to slack.
