    Pros

    Great working environment. Pay with compensation is good. Management is positive which created a stress-free atmosphere. Extra perks are a cafeteria, coffee barista and gym.

    Cons

    The commute to work is absolutely horrible. That's not a negative on the company itself, just the location. Hour lunch was too long for me. Could offer just 1/2 hour lunch and leave work earlier.
