    I have been working at Cactus Communications full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    CACTUS is a great place to work in, especially if you are fresh out of college. There is minimal workplace politics, everyone is super friendly, managers are approachable and the perks in office are great. There is scope for horizontal and/or vertical growth in the company. Everyone is friendly and there is no dress code. Extremely flexible in terms of work hours and work from home.

    Cons

    It gets a bit tedious, to be reading and reviewing thousands of words and dozens of papers on a daily basis. But that's part of the work description Also, most days, your work tends to stretch on beyond work hours.
