      Pros

      Good employee packages Relaxed work environment (can also be painfully slow)

      Cons

      Slow, bureaucratic environment. Almost impossible to get anything done if it involves other teams Constant restructures/jobs being cut, with lack of clarity from management Lack of talent within the company itself, relies on contractors to do heavy lifting in terms of highly skilled work.
