    Pros

    I feel it's a great product that can help people in their planning of money savings, that will help them in future.
    It was a great & quick interview process. Team and Recruiter very very supportive during the process of H1b transfer and shifting the joining date based on my availability.

    Cons

    Giving people tool for that future planning is a great responsibility.
