    Pros

    Good pay, awesome office and location, nice perks, learned a lot

    Cons

    Stuffy, technical, and a weird mix of 1.) former frat bros who aren't smart but know how to sell, and 2.) super smart PhD's who know how to write algos, but don't know anything else. It's a technical company and I was out of my element. NO CREATIVITY. NO room for unconventional ideas.

    Advice to Management

    You're probably doing just fine for what your goals are.
