    Used to have free lunch . Not anymore. Cannot think of anything else.

    Cons

    If you are going there. Just keep this in mind. You can be Albert Einstein and be smartest in the world but you don't get promoted easily. Here Everything works based on relationships. Very long extra hours of work without pay!!! Zero work, life balance. Erratic rules: be buddy to your manager you can come 10 AM and leave 5PM not peoblem. Otherwise arrive 8:05 AM and you can be in trouble.
