    Pros

    Variety of technology and a great mix of clients
    Great place to learn something new, in fact it makes you ready for the next level if you are ready to learn.
    Good pre-sales team, because they end up getting clients that no one can think of

    Cons

    Leadership should understand that company can achieve their goal only with good planning, however I had the chance to work for few good leaders and it had been an incredible journey.
    Should have more female leaders( in the front line) for strategy planning.

    Advice to Management

    Don't get too comfortable and try something new.
