    Pros

    You can work with a lot of good people. The company respect what you have done. Flexible work time and environment. A lot of training opportunities.

    Cons

    It is not the industry leader now and no opportunity to be back to that position. And it is a global company, sometimes you have to work at night to talk with teams in other country.
