    Pros

    Great culture, great flexibility, management actually cares about their staff. Great tech. Easily to move to different team for a change.

    Cons

    During covid, getting rid most of the contractors I think was not a smart move, we ended up losing so much internal system knowledge and good devs during the process, now hiring back is such a tough task to find good people.
