    Pros

    Best performing company in its peer set -- so always nice to be part of the winning team. The people in the top positions are nice, fair and hard working -- including the CEO. It's one of the few corporate environments where you are still connected to the creative arts.

    Cons

    Corporate culture is fairly formal.
