    Pros

    Had a total of 3 interviews, recruiter, manager and director. Everyone I spoke with were so nice and very honest. They talked about the company history, what can be expected and what they are looking for in candidates. It was good to hear about the difficult parts to expect if hired. Overall, it seemed like they knew what skillsets they were looking for in a candidate.

    Cons

    Seemed like a long process.

    Pros

    Karma pays very well and gives recognition and praise to employees for their efforts. There are often fun events and freebies, and the work environment for me is currently overall positive. I've seen a lot of improvements since I first started here.

    Cons

    Very male dominated, some big egos/disagreeable personalities. Morale could be improved.
