      Pros

      Great work life balance. Very smart people and good work culture. Good 401k match (Company matches $6k for your $12k i.e 50% upto $6k). Stable company with a solid product portfolio.

      Cons

      Lower base+stock compensation than competing firms. (Below Glassdoor Median) Slow career growth. Application for Green Cards require you to possess a "Senior" title. Promotions can largely depend on luck since multiple teammates might be ahead of you for a promotion.( 3-4 years is not uncommon.) Very resistant to change in terms of processes and new technology.

      Pros

      Work culture, thrive for innovation, inspiring leadership and it’s amazing how they take efforts to bridge any gap between the senior management and employees, transparent processes, and of course great benefits and competitive pay.

      Cons

      Maybe, they could keep free snacks once a while, but that’s pardonable. So, no cons yet. So far so good..!!!
