    Pros

    The PTO you get is off the charts amazing.

    Cons

    Expect to work more than 40 hours a week for pay that is under market value. Also, when you put in your notice be prepared to have them say you can leave early and get paid two weeks in severance but on your final day in the office have them say "just kidding, no pay".
