    Pros

    It's a small and strong knit HR team. Work-life balance is great. If you are looking for a relaxed and stress-free work opportunity, this is the place to be at.

    Cons

    The salaries are low and it takes time to climb up. The HR function is limited in scope, overlooking many administrative duties. Not many learning opportunities for HR professionals looking to grow.

    Pros

    Brilliant people who are inspiring to work with.
    Good pay if the company needs you.

    Culture does not promote work/life balance (depending on where you work).
