      Pros

      Great culture and colleagues. Great free drinks, snacks, many perks. Great compensation. 5 days of extra flex leave (on top of annual leave) to help take care of life's chores.

      Cons

      Flat structure, most management positions are non-technical staff, though this is just the culture, not a real con. Bonus depends on company performance and in past 2 years has not been fully paid.

      Pros

      - successful business - smart people who are passionate about what they do - fun, informal culture

      Cons

      - small with pretty flat structure, so limited room to grow - most of the growth has been achieved already - some people have stayed on past their use-by date (too comfortable)

      Pros

      Great culture, forward thinking leadership, a real interest in developing staff, profit sharing, great work life balance, a fun place to work.

      Cons

      I don't see a lot of downside, maybe a flat structure so not really the ability to be promoted upwards.
