    Pros

    Great working environment. Very warm. No pressure. Almost encourage you to work from home. Great flexibility. Great benefits, especially for wellness. Great communications from senior management.

    Cons

    Average salaries. Multiple goals you have to hit to get one bonus. No training budget. Very politically correct. Can take years before management OKs an offering that the market is demanding now. Multiple overlapping emails etc from senior management touting results.
