      Pros

      Overall, pretty good work environment. Most people are nice and helpful, and the office tries to keep people engaged. Mobility between teams is highly encouraged. Great grad training program.

      Cons

      Experience is very team dependent: Some teams are overworked, some are toxic, but these are minorities for the most part. Starting pay for new graduates is lackluster.

      Pros

      Great external reputation Nice to have on a resume Above average pay

      Cons

      Training material scattered over numerous intranet sites - excruciating to find information that seem trivial in other companies Technology stack is old and "Morganized" so extra learning curve paired with tedious SDLC processes Must learn new tech outside of work if you want to remain marketable Zero work life balance with no culture of overtime pay - don't join if you actually like your spouse and kids.
