    Pros

    Very technical company and has awesome in-house tool for env provisioning. This is a great place for fresh graduate to learn.

    This is a big company and you have to focus on a narrow field. Not a ideal place if you want to learn how to build things up from ground up.

    Pros

    Good salary and moderate burden, they don't work overtime generally.
