    Pros

    Great company culture and benefits. Work hard play hard mentality. Fun collaborative team members. Company is trying hard to fight biases and inequality between gender, sexual preferences, races

    Cons

    3 sets of phone interviews with 2 recruiters and then with someone who actually works in media - usually a supervisor. Each interview was about 45 mins-1 hour in length.
