      Pros

      Passionate gifted individuals. Inspiring Leadership. Transparent and supportive culture. Leadership is very experienced and capable. Direct and focused objectives for the employee. Culture has a very SV feel. Healthy compensation packages and great healthcare options...and begins the day you start. "Wow"on other perks and benefits too.

      Cons

      I've been in many successful companies in the Bay Area. Technology, Life science, Business consulting to mention a few. The hard things-the cons, stem from rapid growth, business expansion, and business fluidity (covid times) while keeping the finance dogs happy. During this unstable time, make for tension, uncertainty and anxiousness for Twisters. Any nitty complaints will generally be born out of frustration and the aforementioned. And of course, there are definitely bad experiences from people being people-caused by company decisions that worked for some- and not for others.
