      Awesome place to work for. (BXTI)

      Pros

      Good work life balance Get to work with smart people who are all willing to help out as needed. No micro-management Work given is somewhat organized usually. Ability to work at your own pace. If you're happy with just doing the 2-3 tasks that you're given a sprint, you'll love this place. Clock in at 10, out at 5.

      Cons

      Red tape when trying to do anything new and requires involvement from multiple departments. A lot of legacy stuff to migrate and restructure. Some knowledge isn't written down so you have to figure out stuff on your own. Limited ability to observe how some things are set up due to permissions so you're always left in the dark on how some processes are ran. Been here for a few months now and I'm still lost on a lot of things. No hand-holding when you join so you'll have to be ready to learn by yourself.
