    Pros

    Great place to work for. The management is composed for what has to be done. We're having complete end to end ownership of whatever we are doing.
    Work life balance is just fine. Get enough time to pursue personal interests. Compensation is good too (at par with all other big names)

    Cons

    couldn't find any as of now..
