      Pros

      I have much respect for the founder of Liferay, Brian Chan. A large reason of why I've stayed with Liferay is because of his humility, integrity, work ethic, leadership, compassion and conviction. It is very rare to be a part of a company with this kind of leadership. I am also very glad to be a part of the Global Services department. The leadership is caring and we all work hard together.

      Cons

      The tech industry is difficult to keep pace with. It's great that technology is developing so quickly, but as a consultant, you especially see how are expected to learn so much. Liferay, does make efforts to help with this, but this is still a very difficult part of the job.
