Pros

Free transportation (AC Transit, VTA, CalTrain)
Fitness/health promotion
Vision/dental/health
Decent pay
Great collaboration between people
Free gym for employees and their relatives
Very nice places to go for a lunch run, plenty of great places to eat as well

If you don't live close, the commute can be draining, even w/the free transportation, expect to work long hours
It's best that this is a transitional job in order for rapid career growth
