      Pros

      Flexible schedule, multi cultural environment, friendly helpful professional working together.

      Cons

      Not balanced time work usually super busy or light on work. It’s almost impossible to get promotion if you are not friends of managers. People who first languages are not English hardly get out of technical tasks not a chance to be a manager.
