      Pros

      My team is filled with great talented people. Most of the others are rock solid coworkers, with varying skills and backgrounds.

      The work life balance is pretty good, with the vast majority of my working days being 8-9 hours.

      Cons

      Senior Management has some weaknesses and blind spots.

      There are also some issues with the date-driven culture and how that affects the quality of delivery.
