    Pros

    Flat hierarchy -- you could talk to the C-Suite or close to it. Autonomy with accountability, not micro-management. Everyone had a lets figure this out and make it work attitude (little to no arrogant egomaniacs). Recognition for promotions. Work/life balance. Better pay than most companies (leaving was hard for many)

    Cons

    Driving on 95 to get to Stamford CT
