      Pros

      You get to work on interesting projects with supportive and interesting co-workers, many of whom turned down roles at FANG companies to work at Pluto.

      Cons

      Blitz scaling always comes with its down sides. Because the company has scaled so fast some enabling services like IT and recruiting are over extended, or just used to working with much smaller orgs.

      Pros

      Great mentors and plenty of people who can help you out in your career. Made some of my best friends here.

      Cons

      Nothing crazy, just the typical cons of working at big studios. Lots of, well, we'll just say...big egos... on the lot. But as long as you avoid all that, you're good.
