    - amenable to work-from-home
    - benefits are great

    Cons

    Pros

    Warm, fun and relaxed environment, challenging business but colleagues are very helpful, overall I enjoyed working there, management tries to keep a close and warm relationship with employees, good salary and standard benefits (access to a private clinic, free lunch at building cafeteria)

    Cons

    Code base is old and pretty hard to understand but some of the seniors there know the platform very well and can help new team members to some extent. Hard to apply best practices like unit testing and/or design patterns. If you feel comfortable with procedural code this place is for you.

    Advice to Management

    None at this time
