    Pros

    Great supervision, open minded people, top notch pipeline that works like a clock.
    Constant feeling that they are taking care of their people. Almost no overtime.

    Cons

    A bit more London spirit wouldn't hurt. Office could be a bit more pleasant place, design wise, its just a bit to grey for my taste.

    Advice to Management

    Keep on doing amazing work.
