      Pros

      Company has great reputation, have met and worked with really genuine people. Staff perks is very good specially staff travel. Great company culture.

      Cons

      Some people have been there too long and you can tell they no longer enjoy being there so they should just move on. Super long annoying breaks, irregular hours and because of the nature of the job, your life will have to revolve around it.
