      Pros

      - Work-life balance - 401K/Retirement plan is incredible - Team is easy to work with and lower to mid-level management generally has the IC's best interest in mind. - Strong culture among employees is emphasized and a huge positive of working here

      Cons

      - Salary seems to be on the low side in certain disciplines - Silo's with minimal room for lateral movement - Mid-upper management claims to be open to lateral movement but it feels more like you are hurting yourself in the short term by expressing interest in lateral movement
