Pros

Great health and travel benefits. They have a very casual dress code as well. There is the option to work 9 hour days and either have every friday afternoon off or every other friday off.

Cons

Working from home is not permitted on a regular basis. Getting recognized can be hard unless you are in the right spot. To start out they only give 2 weeks of vacation and are very inflexible on negotiating more to start.

Advice to Management

Please find ways to recognize individual contributors. An occasional bonus or perk would be appreciated for a job well done.
