      Pros

      Great office, all the hardware required for the job provided. Communications within the department are informal and efficient. Not too much corporate culture to deal with.

      Cons

      Nothing out of the ordinary really. Usual hurdles of large infrastructure and a lot of people to communicate with. A fair amount of technical debt, inevitable at this size of operation.
