    Pros

    - Solid and fairly well organised code base (for a production house) - Inspiring and fun environment, with plenty of highly knowledgeable experts - Decent benefits

    Cons

    - Slow adoption of newer technologies due to certain senior members - Lots of conflicting interests with no appropriate objective liaison between agents - Significant time difference between the two sites. - Lack of ability to work remotely. - Lots of proprietary systems that need support, but could be replaced with a better product (from job security aspect, this is a pro, I guess)
