    Pros

    Lots of support, great team environment and super supportive managers and team leads. Loads of flexibility (can work remotely seamlessly). Tons of professional development opportunities.

    Cons

    Lots of change -- left hand doesn't know what the right hand is doing. Lots of process problems. Lots of emails go back and forth to clarify simple issues.
