    Pros

    This is a company that cares about it's employees, you will never see anybody yelling at anybody, everybody is very friendly regardless of rank. Considering the material you work with you learn a lot, and since it is always current it is very interesting.

    Cons

    Switching within the company can be very hard if you have been there for less than a year, even if you are a great fit.
