    Pros

    I learned so much while working, there is a lot of ownership in projects so you can see the hardware process from begging to end. The people are also very friendly.

    Cons

    Sometimes I had to work late hours, the workload oscillates between light and heavy and it may be hard to tell what days you need to work late until the day of

    Pros

    Freedom for growth and experimentation. Flat leadership hierarchy. Talented and passionate team, always willing to help, discuss, or challenge you. Risk taking, and ownership/responsibility for your tasks is encouraged.

    Cons

    There are some growing pains. There is always a lot of work to do. Can be a little bit noisy at times.

    Great place - good place to learn

    Pros

    - Hard working and experienced engineers - Challenging work tasks - Fun culture! - Great leaders

    Cons

    - The culture is not for everyone (you have to be a certain type of personality to "fit" in - outspoken or an extrovert) - University lab environment which is fun but also means lack of professionalism - Scope of growth only if the dept. you work in is not yet well-established

    Strong cultural traits that will be good for some and not so good for others

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Kepler has a very strong set of cultural traits that will be very attractive for some, but perhaps not the best for others. What are pros and cons will probably then be subjective based on the individual. Challenging: The work environment seeks constant improvement. It's a great place to challenge yourself to be better than you were before. Not a place where you can expect to coast Familial: The team culture is very much like a family. It means that people can argue and disagree on many things, but at the end of the day everyone is part of the same family and will be treated as such. Ownership: You are expected to own the projects you are working on, and that you take self-initiative to solve problems. Openness: People expect everyone to be transparent and honest. Don't expect everyone to give the most flowery of sentiments.

    Cons

    The cultural traits will work for some people but not for others, so the cons will be subjective based on the individual. Also, the Lead Systems Engineer's muscles are distracting.

    Pros

    This is a great team to be a part of. True collaboration, lack of egos, a willingness to work hard and have a lot of fun are some of these I see every day here.

    Cons

    Lack of processes means if you're not comfortable without direction, you're going to fall behind.
