    Pros

    Nice benefits package; it works a bit like a family on certain departments, less on anothers, but always very professional.

    The work/life balance was the best from all places I've worked in.

    There is no such thing as 5-star company. It had its flaws; sometimes working with outdated technology or practices, but they had improved since then (or so I'm told.)
