    Pros

    Great team and manager. Everyone is very supportive and the work is interesting and challenging. Open-door policy with upper management so you can easily communicate any issues you may be having

    Cons

    Depending on the team you are put on you may have a varying experience. Fortunately, the team I was on was great but had some friends go to teams were they weren't happy; this mindset trickles over to other teams and can affect your morale.

    Pros

    It is a great place to learn. They help you to obtain your PR. There is a lot of talented and friendly people from whom you can learn a lot. They are very flexible with working hours. You might have the opportunity to travel around the world (if you like that).

    Cons

    Their culture to push the company/projects forward is mainly based on intimidation. Salary is below the average, and after a year they might delay several months to give you your salary review. There is a lot of swearing in communication and lack of respect. Most of the training sessions (if any) are very poor compared to the actual work you need to perform. Management in this department is mediocre, and they lack of technical knowledge so you cannot get proper support from them. Culture is based only on money. In other words, do not expect any appreciation as an employee or feedback email from higher management if you are not making hundred of thousands of dollars for the company, they won't even bother to learn your name.

    Advice to Management

    Employees are human beings, show them some respect.
    Hiring people and putting them on a "management" position only based on friendship will cause all your talents to fly away.
