    Pros

    - Competitive salary and benefits
    - Work life balance
    - People have quite good work attitude, they are willing to support you if that is what in their job scope. Whether they know how to do it or not is another matter. Overall professional work environment at least from here outside the US, heard it is totally different creature in the US.
    - If you are in the right markets, you can basically retire here.

    Cons

    - zero career advancement. With except for some roles in high visible markets
    - Current CEO seems lost with quarterly almost monthly reorganization and management reshuffling, which many times just undo previous changes.
    - basically suffering from one product company, the management tried to expand to other new areas but difficult as the cash cow person to person remittance is just too huge and successful for everybody to feel sense of survival.
    - things will go very slow if you are not in priority market. Well, if you like staying under radar. Until next cost cuts that is.

  2. Great experience
