    Depending on which group you join, Work Life balance can be great. Most teams work from Home on Friday’s. We don’t have assigned seating so you are free to work from any desk, office or place your want. You can meet a ton of people this way. The company recently made changes to their maternity and paternity leave policy. All colleagues can take 5 months off to care for a new baby. Benefits are good. Salary is okay. The yearly raises are roughly 3%. People are generally friendly. Networking and building relationship is part of our DNA. We encourage coffee chats with colleagues throughout the company. Lastly you are encourage to switch roles and move around the company every 18 months to 2 years. You will never get bored here!

    Number of benefits but weak, the devil is in the details; insurance is weak spot vs market
