    Pros

    Free food, no dress code, relaxed environment, excellent benefits and perks

    The people are very cliquey, specially the ones that have been there a long time. If you don't find a "group" that you fit in with you will most likely stay on the outside.

    Advice to Management

    Be more inclusive with new employees
