      Pros

      -When you take a vacation you can close the computer and not feel guilty. Time off is respected. -decent office space -global company. Learn a lot about the inner-workings of a global company with longevity - good work-life balance

      Cons

      - status quo. Everything is so bureaucratic it takes forever to make changes occur. Way too many people involved - In April 2020 everyone's pay was cut by 10% due to COVID and has yet to be reinstated (last I heard Summer 2021) - No budget for anything. No t-shirt, mug, notebook or anything when you start. The company christmas gift last year was listening to the Vienna Boys choir on Zoom - Very hard to get rid of low performers. Be mindful of this if you are walking into a leadership position. HR is king. - Benefits suck. Bare bones
