Truly unique place to work. Super smart people, but also helpful and focused on creating an engaged community within. Amazing perks and ability to move around and try different things. Think outside... the box and awesome place to grow and learn.

Alot of consensus building leads to things getting more complicated. Sometimes, there isn't a clear decision maker.
