    Pros

    Single person could make a big difference, perfect to make a showcase of your skills. Flexible on day schedule. Serving lunch and sometimes dinner.

    Cons

    Scrum-based development schedule. Expect overtime up to 60 hours a week. No career possibility.
    Technology selections are odd, making developer's job uncomfortable on many sides. There is no architect so expect to live with immature decisions.
