      Great talent but bad culture

      Pros

      Work with a lot of talented people Work life balance and flexibility WFH available

      Cons

      Culture is very bad. Especially due to company restructures every couple of months. This causes fear and protective behaviour. This means that talent is not nessesarily preserved. A lot of politics. If you are the go with the flow kind of person it might be ok. If you have something valid to say you will need to think clearly before you express yourself as it may be used against you.
