      Pros

      Great people at many levels of the company, flexible work attire, intelligent creative minds, family feel, half day Fridays throughout the year, fantastic products!

      Cons

      Salary is low, the culture is turning aggressive, low retention rate, junior employees are not protected and are expected to be agressive or get out, lack of "promoting from within".

      Pros

      Great company with great people and great benefits

      Cons

      If you don’t enjoy it at least tolerate the type of work you will not enjoy your time here. The amazing culture can not make up for the mentally taxing work load.
