    Pros

    -Culture based work environment. -Surrounded by a bunch of Intriguing people. -You get to repent for the sins you earned giving a hard time to your teacher in your school days.

    Cons

    -Culture based work environment leads to unbalanced work life balance. There's little separation between friends and coworkers during fellowship. -The things you feel and achieve in your fellowship are wonderful but you can hardly share them to outsiders to grasp.
