    Pros

    The people there are awesome. Very smart, hardworking, everyone seems to have a sense of pride in what they do. Interesting work. Good work/life balance despite the sometimes high work load. Everyone in my group gets along really well and works great together. Really nice building in a great location with a great little cafeteria inside.

    Cons

    Seems to be a general lack of accountability for people who don't do their jobs. Seems like it's pretty hard to get fired or disciplined there.
