      Pros

      they try to make up for the salary by pushing the great culture they have. The culture I experienced was not bad as it was still completely WFH. I appreciated being able to connect with my coworkers on a personal level. Near the end of my employment though, I could feel things changing.

      Cons

      Salary is kind of low
