      Pros

      Great office perks, nice & creative coworkers, freedom to work at your own pace as long as everything was turned in on time.

      Cons

      They laid me off and then asked me to reconsider leaving when the other AE quit. They showed a real lack of caring about my future and there was no upward momentum even possible.
