    Pros

    Flexible work-life balance Great benefits Collaborative (most are friendly) Great product and constantly building but will soon fall behind if we don't expand into other verticals

Politics have begun to poison decision making. They have begun to no longer take stances and lead culture the way they would like too. No POC in leadership (C-suite) and board opportunities are limited as well
