    I have been working at Empirica full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Professional work environment, true "team" atmosphere, not micro-managed or overwhelmed by bureaucracy, senior management very receptive to new ideas, opportunities for both personal and professional growth, very good work/personal-life balance, integrity and ethics are highly valued.

    Cons

    No cons other than the normal fire drills that occur within a rapidly growing organization. Some personnel may have difficulty in accepting changes but management does a good job of communicating the rational behind the changes.
