    Pros

    Great team collaboration, and respect for individual contributions. Good work life balance - Company really seems to care. Awesome opportunities for personal and career growth.

    Winning of new business means amazing opportunities for growth, but also times when the workforce is stressed until new people are hired.

    Great benefits, but PTO could be a little better.
