    Pros

    Lots of interesting projects - you can work in just about any technology field
    Lots of interesting people - you work with people smarter than you

    Cons

    Work-Life balance can easily get out of whack if you don't actively manage expectations
    Performance evaluation process was grossly bizarre - testers were rated with/against devs & PMs, not just with/against other testers

  2. I enjoyed every bit of my experience
