    Pros

    The people, the culture, the tech are all fantastic. Feels like making a difference in peoples lives from the outside in.

    Cons

    Work environment could be better outside of head office. PC's and tools can be frustrating. It's a dynamic environment, every few years, your colleagues go and new ones come in. Stability can be a concern each year.

    its a great/fun atmosphere to work in, the people are amazing. great support to achieve goals. the pay is decent and has amazing benefits. part time evening shifts and no weekends.
