    Pros

    You will be surrounded by brilliant minds and tons of human resources as well as great libraries. There are cool projects available if you do it right.

    Cons

    The environment is very high-pressure and results-driven. Everyone is insanely busy with work and personal lives are often neglected.

    Advice to Management

    Reach out to employees more
