      Pros

      - Ample opportunities for career growth, if you are willing to take on new challenges - Awesome benefits such as health insurance, Spark account credit, spark product discounts, and many others - Excellent work-life balance(probably depending on the department/team that we work for)

      Cons

      Working at Spark for past 6 years I don't see considerable disadvantages other than some tooling problems, disconnect between different teams which needs to have better collaboration, which are all common issues that I have seen/experienced in many other companies that I had worked with in the past.
