    Pros

    Great benefits, pay, flexible PTO, perks

    Cons

    If you are a woman, a minority, or a super high performer; you are subject to a lot of gaslighting, harassment, microaggression, and intimidation. Lots of middle and upper management who have favorites and protect one another while they tolerate and provoke bad behavior toward subordinates. The culture makes it impossible for people to obtain promotions based on merit, work experience, and education.
