      Pros

      They'll promote young folks. They'll hire young folks at a higher level than others. A decent place for a kid starting out wanting to build a resumee. But get out in two years.

      Cons

      Sociopaths. I was very uncomfortable treating employees below me per company policy. Pay and office culture was bad. Aura of threats. Constant layoffs. Sexism and racism with a cloyingly fake woke atmosphere. I am on the older side, and was constantly asked to participate in jokes about the exploitation of young labor. By the end of my tenure, I felt gaslit and underpaid myself. Legal doesn't honor contracts. Extremely disorganized.
