      Pros

      A company with the highest standards in their products as well as the environment in which their products are created. Management is fairly transparent and always seems to be striving to be better. There is a healthy atmosphere of continual learning and playfulness while still remaining professional and focused on excellence.

      Cons

      Not really much in the way of cons...may that public transit is a bit difficult
