    Pros

    An excellent place for a self-starter to make great contributions to excellent products.
    Upper management really wants to make a difference in the quality of the products.

    Cons

    This is no place for someone who only wants to "get by." So you have to put your whole heart into what you're doing. If you're not a balanced person, you could over-extend yourself and burn out.
