    Pros

    Passionate, driven, hard working individuals. Flexible time off and enjoyed the workspaces.

    Cons

    Long hours and start up culture. They're constantly innovating which is good on one hand, but they're also always adding things to your plate or you're stretched thin trying to accomplish too much at once.
