    V-lookups will be your best friend.

    Cons

    If you're not ready to hit the ground running and stay at that speed this is not the place for you.

    No work life balance.

    Very cliquish which can lead to it not being a welcoming environment for some.

    HR and some Managers will gossip about you in the hallway or in the kitchen where anyone can hear.

    Tough to ask questions on projects.
