    Couldn't Imagine Liking Work More... Honestly.

    Pros

    You are constantly around smart people. You are encouraged to learn (both about business-related things and things you want to learn on your own). Moving up the career ladder is fairly transparent. The office (food, decor, etc.). And... Cats.

    Cons

    The only con that I can think of is the remote work policy - you have to work in one of the offices (depending on what your role is).

    Easy to coast if you have side business or something else you are focussing outside of work.

    Very grim outlook. We had three different managers and three different cto last year. No one has any idea what they are supposed to work on. Total disaster.
