      Pros

      - Working here has been a charm, lots of interesting projects + technologies to work with - Tight knit team, good local team managers - Good work-life balance, you work your hours and you're done.

      Cons

      - Upper management (corporate) don't know what they're doing, with constant leadership changes - the overall business goal also changes every few months aligning with this - No room for career growth, promotions are rewarded based on years of experience rather than merit - Slow business processes halt development time - getting blocked by 3 months of testing, various sign-off procedures is extremely frustrating when development was supposed to be continuous
