    Pros

    Stable office culture. An older company, in terms of a technology company. Team works well together. Good work-life fit. Newer office space.

    Cons

    None really. Not too many stresses from my level. Office location is somewhat difficult to get to, not great freeway choices. But company has flexible work arrangements.
