    Pros

    Extremely talented colleagues willing to train and support new hires, which fosters a sense that you are truly part of a team. Well defined processes in a collegial work environment. Room to grow your career. Good financial incentives that motivate people to work hard since everyone has a stake in the outcome

    Cons

    Some valuable employees stuck in contractor positions when they really deserve to be part of the team. Medical and dental benefits could be a little better, but ok.
