    Fun job with lots of new tech to work with

    Pros

    The goal of Sling was innovation, not technology for the sake of technology. As a PM it was fun to drive that vision and challenge with new opportunities.

    Cons

    Most of the products Sling works on are for other companies. So therefore you don't always have final say or have to "sell" your innovations to others.
