    Pros

    Small company - you get to work on your own projects, lead projects and onsite opportunities are pretty good. Transparency with managers and leads and you get equal chance to put your ideas on the table. Company awards quarterly to associates who rigorously follow company values.

    Cons

    Fixed benefits/salary to all associates on the same level at onsite which doesn't change if you are not promoted. It's difficult to get time-off and extra hour credits at onsite.
