    Pros

    Management truly cares about employees well-being. Lots of options to work flexibly from home, support with whatever is needed during COVID-19 and otherwise, and this keeps getting better. Management encourages talking calls on walks when possible or otherwise allowing integration into personal activities which is very helpful, especially in the current situation. Increasing corporate social responsibility, commitment to using 100% renewable energy, etc. Frequent optional team events, and virtual ones during Covid-19.

    Cons

    Pay somewhat lower than at some other leading tech companies
