    Pros

    Brilliant colleagues, fantastic startup-ish culture and desire to do things the right way, interesting and widely varied technologies and challenges to solve, great perks to make your life comfortable.

    Cons

    There are some warts such as certain managers and technologies, but far less than any other company and they tend to get dealt with.
