    I have been working at Cougar Mountain full-time

    Pros

    Was a good place to work - good culture, cohesive team, good work/life balance. Not the highest salary, but generous PTO and open atmosphere.

    Cons

    Since new owners took over, the company is a shell of what it was. Reduced PTO, no raises, jobs moving overseas. Had to fight to have 401k, no matching. Many core people leaving through layoffs or finding new jobs.
