      Pros

      Relaxed working environment. They don't overload you with work which leaves enough for one to invest in personal development. Great work-life balance! The place is good for getting some experience (4 years max) then one should move on.

      Cons

      Many senior employees were entrenched in their roles which created silos and made the structure of work rigid. Introductions of new concepts were difficult because of too much pushback. Things were slow to move. It felt like being on a big slow-moving ship.
