apart from the most crucial factor work life balance I like to draw attention to the quality of work it extends. Pure R&D scope you will get. If you like to really make existence as a full stack... developer right place for you. ui,ux,api,cloud,idp,devops all parts and parcel you are free to explore and will get features to develop in you plate. Awesome platform for learning even with hands-on POCs.
Developer's laptops are very heavy to carry along with adapters. If you are working totally remote not a matter for you but with the laptop it's very difficult to travel on a regular basis. IS team... should have worked on choosing some light weight models
