    Pros

    Great benefits, salary, and career opportunities
    Surrounded by top talent
    Looks great on a Resume

    Cons

    Work/Home life balance is difficult
    Change comes too fast, too often, and it does not have a common sense approach. Change comes in silos and is usually done for window dressing rather than attacking root causes to barriers.
    Knowledge comes at a premium and is hoarded; not shared.

    Pros

    Sometimes you would find an open box of candy to eat.

    Cons

    They worked you like a slave. The breaks were not enough for all the running we had to do throughout the ginormous wear house. They should definitely pay more. In the summertime it was beyond unbearably hot and it is very hard to make rate as a picker.
