    Pros

    Very vibrant culture which is focused on education and growth. Company knows how to work and play hard. Very socially minded with a focus on 'foundation' and employees that are generally very nice and respectful. A great focus on 'doing the right thing.'

    Cons

    Fast pace can be exhausting at times. The culture is to help each other out and go the extra mile for the customer, which can lead to long days.

    Pros

    Cons

    The rapid growth and the pressure around quarterly metrics is starting to come at the expense of cohesion and quality.
