    I have been working at Scribd full-time

    Pros

    I've worked at a lot of companies who promise a "work/ life balance," but Scribd is the first to actually deliver on that promise. My life is stress-free, and that's because Scribd is a stress-free place to work. I wouldn't trade it for anything.

    Cons

    Sometimes I disagree with business decisions made by this company. That said, business isn't my job, and as long as the lights are on, I'm happy.
