    Pros

    free lunch. parking downtown. SOME really cool, smart people to work with. relaxed work from home and "unlimited pto" are really nice. Getting to work for some of the biggest brands around is pretty awesome. Especially when you get to see your teams work in action on tv or a huge screen or whatever. I learned a lot in my time here, but mainly only because most managers were not capable of doing their jobs, so the...

    Cons

    There is absolutely no career growth unless you want to suck up and brown nose the people above you. This causes people who have no business or experience managing a team to suddenly become your manager or get some other awesome promotion that is not deserved. Workplace gossip is constant.
