      Pros

      Great Santa Monica location and nice offices, monthly office meeting with all staff levels and departments kept everyone informed and included, Halloween was awesome at the office, good medical benefits, quarterly bonuses, and quality people to work with.

      Cons

      At the time I worked there, there was no 401k match, but that might have since changed. Also, my position was being eliminated shortly after I was hired in the newly created accounting role so that was unfortunate. Also, the CFO was located 3000 miles away from the rest of the corporate accounting group at the time I was there, but I believe that has since changed with the corporate group leaving the west coast.
