    I have been working at shopkick full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Very good company with a lot of perks. A very positive working environment, supportive and open.
    The projects we are working on are usually very interesting, and many times very advanced.

    Cons

    As it is common with a company 8 years old, there's a lot of tech debt sitting around so the development could require a lot more time than expected.
