    Pros

    Benefits, compensation, atmosphere, constantly working on new technology

    Cons

    Base pay is a little low, but that is due to the compensation package, such as free food (breakfast, lunch, dinner Monday through Friday), and many more perks.

    Pros

    Amazing benefits, travel, food (which is phenomenal), opportunities - placements, working on different projects across the company, being constantly challenged, needing to think - constructively, properly and sometimes really quickly, amazing colleagues who are similarly extremely smart, fast and challenging

    Cons

    You need to be prepared to work hard - your bonus, standing, salary etc are all predicated on you working hard and continuing to improve. You need to show you are a team player as well as an individual, so be prepared to take on extra work to make the grade. It's a large company, so you have to find ways to stand out. Don't expect much of a home life at times - when you're up against it, it's expected you'll stay there all hours.
