      Pros

      You'll work with some of the most creative, talented, sharp people in this industry. Good work/client opportunities (for some). You'll learn good habits.

      Cons

      Underpaid, overworked. Management listens, but often doesn't follow through with resolutions. CIS white males are usually the ones who see most of the best opportunities. It felt like a Boys Club for much of my time there, they started to make improvements in recent years. Work-life balance is consistently an issue. New PTO policy is incredibly inflexible and doesn't reflect the reality of what is being asked of its employees on a day-to-day basis.
