      Pros

      Free food & drink during shift, free merch every so often, some great benefits such as fitness reimbursement and private healthcare/dentalcare. The company as a whole go over and above to look after their employees in my experience. The office is a fun and safe place to be. I get the impression there is plenty of opportunity to develop a career here and potentially move to different departments.

      Cons

      I have not experienced any cons so far.
