    Pros

    Plenty of opportunity to advance through internal recruitment.

    Commitment to new technologies and ideas.

    A fair and reasonable review process that measures employee growth.

    Cons

    As with any online company, work/life balance can be a challenge. Management, particularly upper management, is siloed away from the lower ranks, which can make employees feel like they're not as connected to the company as a whole as they may like to be.

    Pros

    -People: The people here are the best. By best, I mean the rank and file.
    -Pay: People are paid fairly. Compensation is fairly high
    -Office: The office is nice.

    Cons

    -Management: Management has no clue about anything. They should fire the entire senior staff. There was a time when things were good and they could be better.
