      Pros

      - Fast pace culture - Ownership and accountability - See the fruits of your labour

      Cons

      - The pace is not for everyone. It can wear you out easily. The trick is to prioritize your mental/physical health and understand the top prioritized projects that can make bigger impact

      Good stepping stone to better pastures

      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Talented coworkers Great benefits Great starting salary

      Cons

      Poor compensation and career advancement opportunities. Much easier to find another opportunity elsewhere. A lot of engineers leave after a year. Poor WLB. A heavy workload is the expected norm. You can choose to take a lighter workload but your performance review will be affected. Poor management of project cycles Poor recognition of individual achievements Only top performers are rewarded appropriately. If not, you should probably leave after a year.
