    It has been a good experience. There are a number of interesting projects going on! There are many great benefits to employees like tuition assistance, great pay, minimum 3 weeks vacation, flexible work schedules.

    Cons

    It can be challenging to create cohesion. Colleagues in many different time zones, leading to meetings at unusual hours. This can also be a perk for creating connections globally!
