    Pros

    Excellent job satisfaction (coming from customer focus)
    Very laid back dress code & atmosphere
    Can bring my dog to work.
    reimburse for parking
    Lots of extremely smart people all around me
    highering bar is very high which means people who make it in are

    Cons

    Can get hectic at times - meaning some weeks are difficult and long.
    Some people who don't set boundaries can burn out fast
    Turn over can be pretty high - usually due to moving on and up to better positions, but sometimes due to burn out.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be aware and take steps to combat burn out so the people who are raising the bar are able to continue working at the company.
    Keep doing everything else just as well as it is.

    Pros

    They legitimately want to remain number 1 in the industry. If job security is important to you, then you definitely want to work with people who have a clue. Their is a healthy paranoia around staying number 1 and targeting seemingly unachievable goals (but somehow always achieving them).

    Cons

    You will work hard. You will not be able to slack. Slackers don't last long. If you think you can "work less but work smarter", this is not the place for you. People here are both smart AND they work hard. That's not to say their isn't a work-life balance. It's just that slacking is not culturally acceptable or tolerated as it is in other companies. Want to "ride it out" to retirement? Again not the place. As long as you work here, you will work hard, but also contribute to great things.
